PILGRIM CHURCH, PILGRIM PEOPLE | Wednesdays April 20 - May 25 | 1:30 - 3:00pm

Pilgrim Church, Pilgrim People:

A Spirituality for the Way

WEDNESDAYS FROM APRIL 20- MAY 25       1:30 – 3:00 PM

 

DVD Series by Fr. Dan Crosby
Facilitated by Marge Lindell

 

We, along with the entire Church, are always pilgrims, always on the way, never able to say we have fully arrived, and never in full possession of the truth. We travel this “way” in a long line of pilgrims—from Abraham and Sarah down to our own times, when “pilgrimages” have taken on new importance. In a sense, even Jesus was a pilgrim when He came to be one of us.

But what does it mean to live as a pilgrim, knowing you never arrive and are never able to settle in completely? Join us as we listen to the recorded presentations of Fr. Dan Crosby, OFM Cap., on what it means to be a pilgrim in our modern world. This six session series is perfect for those looking for a fuller spirituality as they travel along the Way of Christ, and the discussion will be facilitated by Marge Lindell, a resident and volunteer at St. Anthony’s.

Follow Jesus on His Way in this remarkable course on Wednesdays from 1:30-3 pm, beginning April 20, 2022 and continuing weekly through May 25.  Participants may join the discussion in person or via Zoom.  There is no charge for this program but free will offerings are gratefully accepted.

CELEBRATING FRANCISCAN WOMEN | May 20-22, 2022

Celebrating Franciscan Women

 

Presented by:

 Sr. Jolynn Brehm, FSPA; Sr. Marla Lang, FSPA;

Lee Ann Niebuhr, OFS; and Adele DiNatale-Svetnicka, Affl. FSPA

 

Come get to know four bold, courageous women who transformed the world in which they lived. They were innovators in the way they lived the gospel, becoming the change that their world needed. In being open to the guidance of the Holy Spirit, they followed their unique call from God and allowed what, according to their time, was ‘supposed to be’ to collide with what ‘needs to be’. Let them inspire you to boldly and courageously live out your own unique calling by the Holy Spirit to be the change our own world so desperately needs.  

 This retreat features:  St Clare, St Elizabeth of Hungary, Margaret of Cortona and Thea Bowman, FSPA. 

 

Registration begins at 3:00 pm on Friday, followed by orientation at 5:45 and supper at 6:00.
The retreat concludes after the noon meal on Sunday.

 

Guests are expected to wear a mask or cloth face covering in common areas except at mealtimes. 

Cost: $210

If you are unable to attend due to financial obstacles, please contact us regarding payment plans or other options.

JUNE SERENITY 12-STEP RETREAT | June 3-5, 2022

Overcoming Barriers in Recovery

Presented by Ruth Hoenick

 

Spend a weekend examining the barriers we place before ourselves

as we travel the journey of recovery.

One comes into recovery with set thoughts, attitudes and behaviors. The challenge can be overcoming barriers that stop us from moving forward into a new way of living. In taking time to examine the barriers, then finding new ways to think and be, one can transform into a whole new way of living. As Ruth shares her story, participants can investigate their own stories.

  • Language barriers: creating a language that works
  • Moving from Fear to Trust
  • Going beyond our shame and embarrassment
  • Transforming through healing
  • Developing the Divine Spark in me

CELEBRATING OUR PATRON SAINTS SERIES | June 13, August 11, and October 4, 2022

Celebrating our Patron Saints Series

Lunch ‘n Learn: In-Person begins with lunch at noon

Our session, In-Person and on Zoom: 1:00 – 2:30pm

Free Will Offering

 

Sometimes we are so familiar with something that it becomes mundane and void of its importance and significance. This can be especially true in much of our faith practices, including our Patron Saints.  Let us take some time to step back, retreat if you will, to reflect on and ponder our Patron Saints of St. Anthony’s Spirituality Center.

Our time together begins with breaking bread at noon lunch. After lunch, our session will offer us time to learn about and reflect on these saints’ lives and how we might be called to emulate them today.

June 13, Monday:  St. Anthony of Padua

It seems St. Anthony is most often thought of when something is lost and needs to be found. Do you know why?  Do you also know that he is a patron saint of amputees, fishermen, mail and travelers, among many others? St. Anthony of Padua was born Fernando Martins de Bulhões in Lisbon, Portugal. How did he get to be in Italy, or be Franciscan for that matter? Join us in learning more about St. Anthony and his story, which will shed light on why he was one of the most quickly canonized saints in the Church’s history!

August 11, Thursday:  St. Clare of Assisi

What did Clare think about a young woman in her town who snuck around to meet with a man? Or when this woman rebelled against her good family and the promising future her parents helped to secure for her? And what about when this same woman went radically countercultural with an unlady-like haircut? That young woman was Clare. Sometimes we forget to stop and really reflect on how extremely ‘not-normal’ Clare’s decision to follow Christ as Francis followed Christ. Join us as we learn more about and discuss Clare and what she may be inspiring each of us to radically do today in our Christian journey.

October 4, Tuesday:  St. Francis of Assisi

Our beloved Francis is the inspiration of our Holy Father Pope Francis and whose example we desperately need today. Too often when one hears ‘St. Francis of Assisi’ we envision Francis with various animals and critters in nature perhaps talking to Brother Sun or Sister Moon. But his conversion of heart and convictions to follow Christ in poverty, for one example, was an extremely radical and head-scratching idea then and even more so now. Imagine yourself, desiring to be one with Jesus and live out the Gospel so wholly and completely, that you literally sell and/or give away everything you have and own. Every last thing. You not only are now living in poverty but also in insecurity and completely dependent on the providence of God and others’ charity. This is at the heart of our Francis. Share some time with us delving into Francis’ “all-or-nothing” approach to following Christ and being open to how the Holy Spirit calls each of us to our own unique way to follow Christ today.

REFRESH AND RENEW: Moving Meditation Practices for Self-Care | August 26-28, 2022

Refresh and Renew: Moving Meditation Practices for Self-Care

Presented by Elizabeth Lewis

 

Moving meditation is any type of meditation in which we are in motion or active. In this workshop you will discover how deep intention and attention can turn any form of conscious \movement into a sacred body prayer to help us better understand the nature and sanctity of this world. By applying present moment awareness, and by using movement as a tangible focal point, we are given the opportunity to experience our bodies as a path to the Spirit. With St Anthony’s tranquil wooded forest, hiking trails and labyrinth as inspiration, you will experience various forms of walking meditation, as well as standing and nature meditations. Slow hand, chocolate tasting, eating, drawing (no art experience required), gazing and sensory meditations will also be explored. There will be plenty of time for private contemplation and discussion on how any movement-based task (dish meditation!) can be a way to still the mind and renew the soul.

Elizabeth Lewis is a motivational speaker, personal development coach, grief support specialist and spiritual counselor whose areas of expertise include resilience building, forgiveness facilitation, healing art and writing, and trauma healing. Recognizing that there is no “one-size-fits-all” path to wellness and a sense of wholeness, Elizabeth has pursued extensive training and certification in diverse approaches to resilience, healing and growth. Elizabeth also draws on her personal resilience and experience in overcoming trauma to help her clients find their own best path to wellness.
