SERENITY RETREAT A Journey to the Center: Steps 1,2, and 3 | June 5 - 7, 2020 (VIRTUAL)

Greetings! 

When I envisioned the theme of this Retreat over a year ago, I was reflecting on how I was offered a new way of thinking and living through 12 Step programs. Through the first three steps we are guided to admit we are powerless over many things especially those things that we need to turn over to a power greater than ourselves. This has had a profound effect over me. It led me to a place within, that I like to call home. Together we can do what we cannot do alone. This is the beauty of this life-giving program.

 Now that we are in our physical homes being asked to refrain from gathering with others, I would like to offer this Serenity Retreat to all who would like to Retreat in Place. I will provide reflection questions and a video for three days. The theme is still Coming Home. What does that mean for you in this time of uncertainty? For me it has taken on a new meaning.

 I would like to offer Group and One-on-One Zoom meetings that can be accessed via computer or phone. Group meetings will be daily at 11am. I will also make myself available through phone and email. If you would like to talk in any of theses formats please contact me to set-up a time. We can start on June 5th – 7th but know that you can “sit” with the Retreat at any time. I will make myself available all of June for one-on-one time. 

Please contact me if you are interested. Written materials and Zoom information will be Emailed or mailed upon request. 

Yours in Service, Candace Bahr

FRANCISCAN LIVING: The Spirituality of Beauty | September 25 - 27, 2020

Spirituality – identity in action – springs from the mystery of our being. To live well is to live out of an identity that “works.” From a Franciscan perspective, such an identity is grounded in beauty, for beauty lies at the heart of Franciscan spirituality. Such an identity is constantly growing in beautiful simplicity, moving like a stream that daily rids itself of toxins. This cleaning is a vital component of maintaining our identity – our spirituality – in a world filled with toxins such as hatred, prejudice, greed, and fear. Let us take time and space at this retreat to wonder and to discover together the beauty within ourselves, so we can shape a beautiful world. 

 

The retreat will be presented by Br. Jerome Schroeder, a Capuchin Franciscan for over 50 years. His years of ministry centered on the marginalized in the larger urban landscapes of the Midwest, the greater part of which was parish pastor and retreat ministry to the poor. He is a poet and ongoing student of the Franciscan approach to bringing life to the Gospel and the Gospel to life.

Cost: $200 | Registration begins at 5 pm on Friday, followed by supper at 6:30. The retreat concludes after Mass and the noon meal on Sunday. 

To register, call 715-443-2236, e-mail info@sarcenter.com, or click here.

BECOMING THE BELOVED DISCIPLE OF JOHN’S GOSPEL | August 21 - 23, 2020

 

BECOMING THE BELOVED DISCIPLE OF JOHN’S GOSPEL

| August 21 – 23, 2020

For many years we took for granted that the “Beloved Disciple” who appears in the latter chapters of John’s Gospel is John, the Gospel writer himself. Most recent Scripture scholars have begun to question this assumption. They tell us that the “beloved Disciple” was, indeed, a real disciple who lived out his discipleship within the early Johannine community, but who is deliberately un-named, so that all disciples encountering these passages could find themselves within the words. This retreat will prayerfully linger over all these passages of John’s Gospel, in order to discover the richness they contain for a deeper following of Jesus in our own lives – in other words, to become Jesus’ “Beloved Disciple.”

Fr. Dan Crosby, OFM, Cap is a friar of the Capuchin Province of St. Joseph. Fr. Dan was the Director of St. Anthony Spirituality Center for several years before the transition from Capuchin leadership to lay leadership at St. Anthony’s. He currently ministers at St. Bonaventure Monastery in Detroit, MI, but enjoys returning to Marathon to visit and to offer retreats at St. Anthony’s.

 

 

Please note that Fr. Dan Crosby’s Becoming the Beloved Disciple Retreat, which was originally scheduled for the weekend of April 17 – 19, has been rescheduled to the weekend of August 21 – 23. If you have already registered for Fr. Dan’s retreat and have not yet received an e-mail message or phone call inviting you to transfer your registration to the August weekend, please drop a line to Center Director, Dr. Lori Randall, to let her know whether or not you would like us to transfer your registration to the August weekend. You can reach Dr. Lori at lrandall@sarcenter.com

Cost: $190 | Registration begins at 5 pm on Friday, followed by supper at 6:30.The retreat concludes after Mass and the noon meal on Sunday.

Note  Fr. Dan’s retreat is FULL and registration is now closed.
