Fr. Bernie Bush, SJ, Speaks on the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit

Father Bernie Bush, SJ, will lead a morning reflection on the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit on Saturday, June 4th, from 9:30 to 11:30 in the church.  Fr. Bernie Bush, S.J., is the spiritual director at the Jesuit Retreat House in Los Altos.
Wisdom and understanding, right judgment and courage, knowledge and reverence, and wonder and awe in God’s presence. The Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit, derived from Isaiah’s list of the qualities that would characterize the coming Messiah, are hallmarks of Jesus’ personality as we see him throughout the gospels. These same gifts were also given to the apostles at Pentecost and poured out on us at our anointing at Confirmation.
What better way to prepare for Pentecost than to reflect on these seven gifts, their implication for life in the Spirit, and what they might mean for us personally in our lives today? Come join us!
All are welcome to join us. Bring a friend! There is no charge but donations are gratefully accepted.
