Father Dan Crosby, a white man with balding head, glasses, and wearing a brown friar's habit, smiles at the cameraThe theme is drawn from John 1:35-39, in which Jesus turned and saw two disciples of John the Baptist and invited them to “come and see” where he lived. During the retreat, participants draw closer to see Jesus gazing on them, inviting them deeper into his way of looking, loving, and living.

Father Dan, a resident of St. Bonaventure Monastery in Detroit, assists with the healing ministry at the Solanus Casey Center. Through his years of ministry as a college campus minister, pastor at inner-city and reservation parishes, provincial, and retreat center director, he has integrated Scripture and the Franciscan vision into his life and preaching.
