Bolinas church to host Ash Wednesday retreat

February 13, 2015

Dominican Father Bruno Gibson will hold a Lenten retreat Ash Wednesday, Feb. 18 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., St. Mary Magdalene Church in Bolinas.

The retreat will consist of two presentations, each followed by a period of silent prayer, meditation, examination of conscience and the sacrament of reconciliation.

The first presentation is titled “Ashes to Ashes and Dust to Dust, If the Camels don’t get you, the mosquitos must” (Robert Lloyd, 1918).

The second lecture: “Created to be Fire: I came to cast fire on the Earth, and how I wish it were blazing already” (Luke 12:49).

Ashes will be available during the morning Mass at 9 a.m. or at the end of the retreat.

The morning retreat will culminate with a Lenten soup at noon. Please RSVP by calling (415) 272-1866, or email brunogibsonop@gmail.com.

Participants may join for any part of the celebration and are asked to respect the silence between presentations.
