In today’s world of isolation, we feel a call in our hearts to create connections of love and hope. Join us as we deepen our relationship with the Creator and all of creation in a day of discovery, play, reflection and inspiration. This three-hour program will include online prayer and discussion, and offline reflecting, including an invitation to interact with nature in your own environment. This is a collaborative event with Marywood Franciscan Spirituality Center in Arbor Vitae, Wisconsin; Prairiewoods Franciscan Spirituality Center in Hiawatha, Iowa; and the Franciscan Spirituality Center in La Crosse.

Angie Pierce Jennings is the hosted groups and hospitality coordinator at Prairiewoods. She is a people person, a lover of nature, an outdoorswoman and an advocate for education and environmental sustainability.
