Coordinated by S. Marcia Ziska, assisted by Sisters Micaela Randolph, Patricia Seipel, and Elizabeth Carrillo, OSB. Cost: $150 (includes private room and meals)
The start of a new year brings us new possibilities and opportunities. How about beginning 2024 by examining how you view and experience God, yourself, others, and the world? Using S. Melannie Svoboda’s book, Traits of a Healthy Spirituality, as well as the expressive arts (e.g., music, art, and movement.), we will discuss what it means to have a healthy spirituality and explore what that looks like for you. This will be an engaging and interactive time. If you would like to enhance your experience of this retreat, you may choose to purchase the book to have on hand during your retreat time, but this is not required. We will have a limited number of copies available for purchase at Sophia, and will be happy to reserve one for you—just let us know in the “comments” field as you register.
Please register by December 29. Once we have received your registration, we will send you an invoice for the retreat. Please know we have scholarships available; if you would like to make a request, email S. Carol Ann at email@example.com
. We strongly encourage you to add firstname.lastname@example.org
to your email contacts to ensure the delivery of emails regarding your retreat.
