Faith and Sharing Day of Reflection ~ Blessed Creations of God

 

Who did God create you to be?  What gets in the way of you living that way?  Today Janene Ternes will share her inspirational story of how she came to be more fully who God intended her to be and help us explore where we each are on that journey.  Using music and simple everyday movements, we will learn a way to pray that removes distractions and helps us focus.  Basic everyday movements will be taught which can be done by anyone, regardless of age, experience or physical limitation.  

 

This retreat is inspired by the ministry of Jean Vanier, founder of L' Arch Communities worldwide.  The program includes presentations, faith sharing in small groups, time for silent reflection, Reconciliation, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and prayer.  Come and find love, life, prayer, singing, laughter, time alone with Jesus and more!  Our animator is Janene Ternes.

OPEN Day Retreat ~ Hope in the Lord

 

Do you long to have more faith and trust in the Lord?  Does it waiver when you encounter difficulties and worry sets in?  Even when we know that God is with us and will always be with us, that truth can be hard to hang onto in times of trouble. 

 

There are many ways that we can recognize God's presence and working in our lives and receive the hope that comes from it.  Join us as we explore the Source of our hope and the Anchor of our soul, using movement, music, Scripture, guided reflection, and journaling.  Turn your cares over to the Lord, increase your trust, and leave refreshed, inspired and hopeful.  Basic everyday movements will be taught which can be done by anyone, regardless of age, experience or physical limitation.  Opportunity for optional attendance at Mass will be offered.

November 8-10, 2019
Friday night - Sunday morning

Weber Retreat Center, Adrian, MI

St. Francis of Assisi Women's Retreat Weekend ~ The Martha - Mary Balance of Life

 

The story of Martha and Mary is not a story about the supremacy of a life of prayer over a life of action.  It is an invitation to move from being distracted to being attentive in our prayer as well as in our action.  When we busy ourselves with many other things, we have come off-center.  Jesus was inviting Martha to reconsider why she was doing what she was doing and to realign. 

 

A retreat is a time away from our normal activities so that we might spend time getting reacquainted with God, examine our priorities in life and to make concrete and practical resolutions for improvement - usually spiritual, but could really be anything.  Retreats can be a powerful step toward personal conversion.

 

So come enjoy some quiet prayer time in order to listen to God.  Get away for the weekend!  Grow closer to the Lord!  Moms and older daughters, sisters, friends -- all are welcome to attend. 

 

Our director, Janene Ternes, will use the story of Martha and Mary to lead us on an interior journey.  There will be time for prayer, table talk, and large group discussion.  You will also have time to relax, walk the grounds, and socialize.  We will celebrate Sunday Mass.

 

Single room cost is $225; double room (shared with someone) is $175 per person. There will be four conference talks, time for individual prayer and relaxation, Saturday night Mass with St. Francis pastor Fr. James Conlon, and your meals.  Arrive Friday late afternoon/early evening for dinner from 5:00 - 6:00 pm and first talk at 7:00 pm.  Concludes Sunday after lunch. 

 

Weber Retreat Center is located at 1257 East Siena Heights Dr., Adrian, MI, 49221.  Register at www.stfrancisa2.com     For more information, contact Marty Lucas at 734-821-2125.
