Experience God through 'Silence and Sunset'

(Summer 2019) -- This summer, let yourself be in awe of God’s brilliant sunsets ... study the kaleidoscope of color found in prairie flowers and birds ... step away from the noisy world and step into the power of prayer!

These opportunities and more await women at our sixth annual “Silence and Sunset.” Each evening will begin with prayer at 6:30 pm. From there, attendees may use the time for private prayer, reading, walking in the gardens, or learning what spiritual direction is and how it can transform your life. We'll conclude with prayer at sunset followed by refreshments.

"Silence and Sunset" is free and held rain or shine! Enjoy an evening at St. Francis Convent, 3110 Nicolet Dr., Green Bay, (map), and please be sure to register.
