Lent is a beautiful time to experience the graces of God. It is a chance to pause in the busyness of the world, to take a breath and reflect on the Living God of creation.
Are you looking to grow closer to God? To deepen your spiritual relationship with the Lord? If so, this Lenten retreat may be just what you’re looking for.
Join us on February 25th for a retreat on prayer and finding God in the silence, followed by Adoration and Benediction with Father Mark Mastrian.
Dr. Jan Satterlee will present prayer as communication with God. She will provide examples of prayer and unpack the three expressions of prayer: vocal, meditative, and contemplative.
Additionally, Dr. Jan will explore The Lord’s Prayer, the beautiful prayer given to us by Jesus. Using the Catechism, Scripture from both the Old and New Testaments, Greek interpretations, and spiritual theology, Dr. Jan will unpack the seven petitions, what we are really asking for, why we pray them for everyone and not just for ourselves, and much more.
Finally, Dr. Jan will discuss roadblocks to prayer, such as distractions, wandering thoughts, expectations, dryness in prayer, and the darkness of prayer.
11:00am to 3:30pm
Dr. Jan has a PhD and is a spiritual director. She lives in Reynoldsville with her husband,
Deacon Dan. They have five children and 15 grandchildren.
They are members of The Holy Spirit of parish in DuBois where Dan is Deacon and Jan serves
in various ministries.
