February 26 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Join Fr. Dan Riley, Joe Flanagan, and SBU students for a Mountain on the Road – Mass and Reception, celebrating our Franciscan Heritage at Chaminade Activity-Athletic Center, Jericho Turnpike, Mineola, NY on Sunday, February 26 at 10:30 am. Family & friends are welcome.
Also, be sure to take the opportunity to congratulate Fr. Dan on his long-awaited debut as a published author! Franciscan Lectio: Reading the World Through the Living Word is the title of Fr. Dan’s reflective book and if you own a copy, he would be happy to sign it after the reception, if time permits.
Please let us know that you are going to join us by signing up on the SBU Alumni page HERE.
Franciscan Lectio is for all those who are on a spiritual journey who long to see the world more beautifully and deeply and become more attentive and present. In Franciscan Lectio, Fr. Dan comes alongside us in our own encounters with lectio and inspires our spiritual imagination through story, art, poetry, nature, Franciscan mysticism and Scripture — helping us to see that all of life is unitive and sacred.
Fr. Dan takes us on a journey with him as he became a friar and ministered at St. Bonaventure University for many years, while also founding Mt. Irenaeus. Sharing his own experiences and the Franciscan heritage, he opens for us a journey influenced by, among others, Thomas Merton, St. Francis of Assisi and St. Clare of Assisi who offer us a practice of “gazing, considering, contemplating and acting” – living the Good News today filled with a sense of beauty and hope.
If you’re spending time with us and wish to share some of your pictures, please use the hashtag #mtirenaeus or email them to [email protected] so we may use them on the website, social media and in printed publications. Thanks!
