Lenten Mission: – Spiritual Spring Training w/ Fr. David McCallum

February 23-25, 2015 ~ 7:00pm

Fr. David will facilitate experiences that can help us grow in self-awareness, inner freedom, and that helps us draw closer in our personal relationship with God. The retreat will weave together talks, exercises, and time for questions and conversation.

A Gardener’s Prayer

Vegetable_GardenFather of all gardeners, we thank Thee that in the long ago Thou didst begin the world in a garden..

We thank Thee for the morning and the singing of the bird.   

We thank Thee for the quiet and peace of eventide and the blessing of sleep which comes with the night.

As we rise in the morning to work in our gardens, grant that the toil of our bodies may bring tranquility to our minds; that the growth of our  plantings be exemplified in the growth of our souls; that the fruit of our trees be the perfect attainment, the crowning glory of a life dedicated to Thee.  Amen.
