Beauty in a Broken World: A Retreat for Women

November 16-17, 2018

Surrounded by beauty and surrounded by brokenness will be the focus of this time together. Storytelling in the framework of praying with beadwork with Marie Fleisner will be our morning time.

Nature reflections using seed pods will be led by Sr. Jolynn. Conversations about ways that both beauty and brokenness help make connections and strengthen hope will follow quiet reflection.

This one-night retreat will begin with Friday supper at 6:30 p.m. and will conclude by 3:30 p.m. on Saturday. Cost of $95 includes overnight accommodations, delicious buffet meals and program fees.

Her background includes elementary and secondary educator, pastoral associate, co-founder and director of the Marywood Spirituality Center in Arbor Vitae. She has been a retreat director and spiritual director since 1989 and began offering preached retreats in 2005 at retreat centers and for communities of Sisters throughout the Midwest. She joined St. Anthony Spirituality Center as spiritual leader in July 2015.
