Facilitated by Melannie Svoboda, SND
What does healthy spirituality look and feel like? This retreat will explore some of the traits indicative of spiritual health: love and respect for nature, prayer, compassion, hope, a balance between work and leisure, the ability to live graciously with a certain amount of adversity and ambiguity. Through multiple mediums including scripture, music, story, and humor, Sister Melannie will lead us into an exploration of God’s presence and action in our everyday lives.
Please register by October 25. Once we have received your registration, we will send you an invoice for the retreat. Please know we have scholarships available, and if you would like to make a request, email S. Carol Ann at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We look forward to seeing you online.
