A place of beauty and contemplation,
A place to renew one’s spirit, to see with new eyes,
A place to learn and connect,
A place to rest
The Franciscan Spiritual Center in Milwaukie, OR is the place where you will find all of this and more. Grounded in the spirit of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi, the Center welcomes people of all faith traditions, spiritual paths and seekers of new ideas and old traditions.
Come visit us to experience our enrichment programs, browse our uniquely Franciscan gifts and book store, or to sit in our meditation chapel. We invite you to share in our vision to provide you with a place of beauty and contemplation in the midst of the challenges and busyness of daily life that you might leave renewed, rested and refreshed.
Saints, Suds & Spirituality: Where the Hoppy & the Holy Intersect
This series is based upon beers named after Saints. We will begin by tasting the beer, learning about the brewing process, ingredients, etc. This will be followed by a lecture about the Saint, their beliefs, their spiritual insights and their godly example. As you can tell, this would be a perfect time to invite friends or family, especially those who don’t have a church family. We will have a little fun and learn a little something along the way. The schedule is as follows.
February 5- St Bernadus Abbey Ale: St. Bernard of Clairvaux and the Four Loves
February 12- Franziskaner Hefeweizen: St Francis of Assisi: Life and Faith
February 19- Trappist Ales: St Benedict of Nurcia and Benedictine Spirituality
February 26- Petrus and Paulaner Ales: Saint Peter, Saint Paul and Practical Piety
Cost: $25 per session
Facilitator: Fr. Dan Morrow of St. Paul’s Church
