One Time Events

One Time Events & Adult Retreats

Throughout the year we sprinkle in a variety of special one-day or one-evening events, especially for those of you whose busy lives make attending a series less probable. These may be educational in theme, or more spiritual in nature. “The Church therefore must maintain an active, listening presence in relation to the world, a kind of presence which both nurtures community and supports people in seeking acceptable solutions to personal and social problems” (Catholic Social Teaching #80)

Lenten Spring Morning Retreat:
“Living During Times of Change & Transition” (Preparing for the Triduum)

Saturday, March 18th, 9:30am to 12:30pm
Facilitator: Sr. Joanne Dehmer

“Transitions take us through a continuous process of losing and finding a new identity. We are no longer the same person after important changes, and we have to bid farewell to one sense of self without knowing what we will be like in the future.”
~Autumn Gospel, Kathleen Fischer

Change is constant—as is transition. At our Lenten mini-retreat on Saturday, March 18th, we will reflect on change as outward events that happen in our lives and transition as the inner processes we experience that accompany these changes. There will be time for reflection and shared conversation. Our guide will be Sister Joanne Dehmer. Sr. Joanne comes to us from Loyola Spirituality Center in St. Paul where she has served since leaving our parish in 1994. She has been a spiritual director and guide for retreats and workshops for over 40 years and is delighted to return to us for this retreat. There is no cost.
