One Day Retreats

Mirroring the Active Love of God ~ Our Call to Mercy
Wednesday, October 5, 2016
with Diane Dube

As God continuously moves toward us in loving desire for communion, we are invited to open ourselves to this compassion.  From this encounter, we are then able to mirror God’s love to others.  We call this mercy!  On this retreat, we’ll take a look in the mirror of our lives and perhaps discover the healing power that enables us to begin to love as God does.

Cost:  $45.00 includes hot meal
Arrival 9:45 AM ~ Please bring a Bible and a journal if you wish.
Begins promptly at 10:00 AM  and ends at 3:30 PM

** Over-night Option available.  See note below for details. **

The Seasons of Our Lives

with Ann Boyle, RSR

Our lives are full of challenges, like the seasons of time, touching us deeply as we move through them.  On this day of reflection, we will enter into the quiet space of our hearts and reflect on the Seasons of Our Lives – Spring, the season of hope; Summer, the sunny side of life; Fall, the season of change and letting go; Winter, the season of going within.  The day will include short presentations, prayer, time for personal reflection and sharing.

Cost:  $45.00 includes hot meal
Arrival 9:45 AM ~ Please bring a Bible and a journal if you wish.
Begins promptly at 10:00 AM  and ends at 3:30 PM.

The Handmaid of the Lord
Thursday, December 1, 2016
with Ann Boyle, RSR

Come and enter into the Season of Advent with Mary.  Mary’s attitude is that of a handmaid; a servant wanting to do God’s bidding wherever that may take her.  As we prepare for the Coming of Christ, we will spend time reflecting on the heart of a woman who’s in love with God, who’s allowed God to be in charge of her life and also how her response has affected her life.

What does that mean to your life?  When have you felt that God was asking the unimaginable of you?  How did you respond to God?  The day will include short presentations, prayer, time for personal reflection and sharing.

Cost:  $45.00 includes hot meal
Arrival 9:45 AM ~ Please bring a Bible and a journal if you wish.
Begins promptly at 10:00 AM  and ends at 3:30 PM.

Blessing ~ The Power of Recognizing God’s Goodness!
Wednesday, April 26, 2017
with Diane Dube

God is Good!  God is Great!  Let us thank God for our food!  Amen.  We are familiar with this simple table blessing.  Yet, food is only one way that God favors us on a daily basis.  What if we could recognize so many other ways God has poured out goodness upon our lives?  Sometimes, our blessings are hidden in suffering and pain.  Through sharing, quiet reflection and prayer, we will discover how God demonstrates protection, assistance and favor throughout our lives.  Come, be energized by this discovery and consider the invitation to become blessing, as we have been so richly blessed.

** Over-night Option available.  See below for details. **
