Live Jesus! March 21st

A morning of reflection, fellowship, & prayer

Join us on Saturday, March 21, 2020 from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM for the 17th Annual Live Jesus event, a Lenten morning of spiritual reflection.

"Seeking Unity by Living Jesus" will be presented by Reverend Brian Zumbrum, OSFS

In a world where gentleness is hard to find and divisions are getting more pronounced, we seek unity. Using the lens of Salesian Spirituality, we will explore ways to heal these divisions through getting proximate with those situations and God's children with whom we are not comfortable. In this work, we will discover the true power that our Spirituality offers us in the midst of brokenness and difficultly. Father Brian will share life changing experiences gained from his ministries at Nativity Prep and Salesianum High School.

Prior to the program, please join us for a continental breakfast beginning at 8:00 AM.

Registration is required. Visit http://events.oblates.org/live-jesus/

"Friendship, Foundation, and Family" presented by:
Brother Dan Wisniewski, OSFS
Sister Anne Elizabeth Eder, OSFS
Ms. Paula M. Riley

Brother Dan will address the benefits and challenges of friendships in difficult, divisive times. He will draw upon the teachings of Saint Francis de Sales on friendship and share his experiences maintaining friendships while working with college students and living in community.

Sr. Anne Elizabeth will guide us in our reflection on the struggles of a foundation in our Salesian tradition. She will explore how our Oblate founders, Blessed Louis Brisson and Saint Leonie Aviat, dealt with these challenges to build a vibrant community, allowing us to follow in their footsteps. These bonds of love create unity and strengthen each of us as we face challenges together, seeking what is right, true, and good in each person and situation.

Paula will explore the conflicts and complexities in her roles as wife, mother, sister, friend, professional, and volunteer. She will share how her faith and encounters with Salesian Spirituality have guided her through life's conflicts.
