Marillac Center will host “Divine Mystery of the Cosmos,” a brief retreat from Friday, April 5, 5 p.m. to Saturday, April 6 at 5 p.m. This presentation will weave the Universe Story and the Paschal Mystery together with the art of Sister Marion Honors, CSJ; poetry; and theological reflection. Retreatants will explore ways the “Great Flaring Forth” of the universe is an invitation to contemplate how Divine Mystery enfolds the cosmos.
