CLARE OF ASSISI BLESSING OF BREAD:
Contemplation and Communion
In a time of declining interest in the Eucharist, we will explore the meaning, myth, and mission of Eucharist for Clare and us today.
St. Anthony Foundation invites you to an evening of contemplation and communion featuring guest speaker Sister Mary Elizabeth Imler. Sr. Mary Elizabeth serves as Vice President of Mission Integration at the University of St. Francis, Joliet, Illinois for the past twelve years. Besides her “day job” she is on staff for the Franciscan Pilgrimage Program and lectures widely. Her love for all things Franciscan is grounded in over 40 years as a vowed Franciscan and holds an MA in Franciscan Studies from St. Bonaventure University. Considered a “translator of the translations,” her enthusiastic Franciscan style spills out in simple practical applications as well as in deep theological understanding.
