Francis saw his life as the life of a penitent. What did it mean for him to wear cheap cloth and cord around his waist? Together we will read about him sprinkling ashes over his food and even covering his head with them. We will read Francis' original biographer's accounts of his approaches to almsgiving, fasting and prayer. Learning Francis' approach to the penitential life could serve to enlighten you and inspire you to "make it a great Lent." By the end of the day, you will have determined some new Lenten practices which will enrich your own journey toward Easter.
Facilitator for this workshop will be Julie McElmurry.
