Guided Meditation: Salvation—”Come Down from the Tree” (via Zoom)

facilitated by Sr. Linda Zahner, OSB 
Cost: $15
Join us for a guided meditation on the theme of salvation that Jesus offers to us all. For this meditation, we will focus on the story of Zacchaeus and how he is called by Jesus to come down from the sycamore tree to receive the gift of salvation. Here we are reminded that Jesus offers this gift to each of us, despite our unworthiness and lack of faithfulness. In our meditation, we will be invited to let go, to risk climbing down from our perch, and to be open to sharing at the table — accepting the salvation Jesus has claimed for us. We will have scripture reading, guided meditation, quiet reflection, time for sharing, and a closing prayer.

Please register by March 31. 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 We strongly encourage you to add to your email contacts to ensure the delivery of emails regarding your retreat. We look forward to welcoming you online.
