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.

DIVORCE RECOVERY RETREAT I - Grief and Trauma: Healing the Past to be Present | September 9-11, 2022

 

Divorce Recovery Retreat I – Grief and Trauma: Healing the Past to be Present

 

 

Presented by: Tanya Hielke

 

In this three part series, adults will learn the skills needed to heal the grief and emotional pain associated with divorce. No one understands the emotional toll divorce places on another except the person going through the divorce. Deep sadness, anger, loneliness, and even physical pain are all part of the divorce process. Family and friends may have said to you, “the divorce is over, time to move on”, or “there are plenty of fish in the sea.” These statements, and others, are said because the person making the statement doesn’t know how to respond to your grief. Much like a person who loses a loved one to death, we too experience the death of a relationship. Only divorced people don’t receive cards, casseroles, or cash! And no one comes to visit to see how you are doing or if you need any help. There isn’t a visitation to help us process the grief with a sea of friends and well wishers. Instead, we can be left feeling abandoned, ashamed, and alone. 

Guiding divorced adults through the process of healing past hurts and the deep pain associated with divorce has truly been a gift in my life. I watch adults transform as they discover a new way to live, a new way to look at themselves, family, and friends, and blossom into joyful and hope filled people whom God intended them to be.”  

If you are experiencing a divorce now or have been divorced for years and still hold onto old hurt and pain, this series is for you! Trust the process. It works! Your life will change and you will feel joy and hope once more. 

Retreat Dates:

1- September 9-11, 2022 -Divorce Recovery Retreat I – Grief and Trauma, Healing the past to be present.

FRANCISCAN LIVING RETREAT | September 23-25. 2022

 

TRANSFORMING THE WORLD THROUGH REVERENCE

Franciscan Living Retreat

 

 

St. Francis said: “I want only this privilege from the Lord: never to have any
privilege from any human being except to show reverence to all.”

 

REVERENCE TO ALL: in this twenty-first century world ruled by greed, power, manipulation, and violence, is Francis’ vision and desire naïve and romantic or the only way our wounded world will survive? Come to this retreat to grapple with Francis’ Gospel vision and what it demands of us in our everyday living.

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.

SEPTEMBER/ OCTOBER SERENITY 12-STEP RETREAT | September 30 - October 2, 2022

 

Fall Serenity 12-Step Retreat


RUN SO AS TO WIN

 

 

Presented by: Sr. Elise Cholewinski, OSF

 

In Wisconsin September and autumn mean one thing; football! During this retreat we will “run” through the Twelve Steps, using a large paper football field as our point of reference. As we proceed through each of the conferences, we will move along certain yard lines on the playing field, where we will meet up with certain persons from the Bible. The overriding question of the retreat is: Do I want to be a winner or a loser?

Sister Elise Cholewinski, OSF is a member of the community of the Sisters of St. Francis of the Holy Cross, whose convent is located in Green Bay, Wisconsin.  Sister taught in several parishes in the Diocese of Green Bay before entering the ministry of religious education.  She has a master’s degree in religious education from Loyola University in Chicago, and was trained in spiritual direction at the Norbertine Center for Spirituality in De Pere, Wisconsin.  She is currently teaching adult education courses throughout the diocese of Green Bay.  She does spiritual direction and regularly does retreat work, including Twelve Step retreats, at the Jesuit Retreat House on Lake Winnebago.

                           

Registration begins at 3:00 pm on Friday, followed by orientation at 5:45 and supper at 6:00.

BECOMING BREAD | October 28-30, 2022

 

Becoming Bread Retreat

Presented by: Candace Bahr, Deanna Deising, and Tanya Hielke

 

 

 

Transformation. Imagine for a moment the different ingredients that go into a loaf of bread… the different steps to make sure the bread turns out just right, including the kneading, waiting and going into the fire… the enticing aroma as it bakes and then finally sharing the bread with others around the table. Bread is nourishment around the world and God intends for us to be nourishment to each other. But first, we must allow ourselves  to be nourished by God.

 

During our time together each participant will make their own loaf of bread! We will ponder the various ingredients and steps to make this bread and explore how they relate to our own lives – especially our faith journey in which we can become our true selves and be able to share ourselves and our gifts with our neighbor and the world around us; becoming bread for others.


Candace Bahr, a Resident Volunteer at St. Anthony’s, is a Certified Spiritual Director and Soul Companion with an extensive background and experience in leading retreats and living out her calling to help individuals to notice, savor and respond to the presence of Divinity/Spirit/Essence in their lives.

ETHICAL AND SPIRITUAL DISCERNMENT IN THE FACE OF ILLNESS OR INJURY | November 4-6, 2022

 

Ethical and Spiritual Discernment in the Face of Illness or Injury

 

 

Presented by Dr. John Stys

 

For many of us, it’s uncomfortable to think about ourselves and our loved ones getting older and increasingly frail. While it’s easy to get caught up in our society’s fear and anxiety, we have an alternative. We can find comfort not only in Christian thought, but also in our ability to use our human reason and intellect to work through common and well understood ethical and spiritual issues when faced with declining health.

During this weekend retreat, participants will explore Ignatian discernment of spirits, decision-making in ethically and emotionally challenging healthcare scenarios, and confronting the universal human fears related to advancing age and declining physical and cognitive function.

Dr. John Stys still likes to consider himself a “son of Ignatius,” having been a vowed member of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) for many years. That experience, as well as formation as a professed Secular Franciscan, has guided his thought and operational work as a hospice and palliative care senior executive and university educator.

 

Check-in 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.

certainty and explore spiritual practices to bring forward into our daily lives.

 

Check-in 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.

DIVORCE RECOVERY RETREAT III - Healing My Love Relationship/Dating/Moving On | May 5-7, 2023

 

Divorce Recovery Retreat III – Learning to Let Go, Living a Life of Peace

 

Presented by: Tanya Hielke

 

In this three part series, adults will learn the skills needed to heal the grief and emotional pain associated with divorce. No one understands the emotional toll divorce places on another except the person going through the divorce. Deep sadness, anger, loneliness, and even physical pain are all part of the divorce process. Family and friends may have said to you, “the divorce is over, time to move on”, or “there are plenty of fish in the sea.” These statements, and others, are said because the person making the statement doesn’t know how to respond to your grief. Much like a person who loses a loved one to death, we too experience the death of a relationship. Only divorced people don’t receive cards, casseroles, or cash! And no one comes to visit to see how you are doing or if you need any help. There isn’t a visitation to help us process the grief with a sea of friends and well wishers. Instead, we can be left feeling abandoned, ashamed, and alone. 

Guiding divorced adults through the process of healing past hurts and the deep pain associated with divorce has truly been a gift in my life. I watch adults transform as they discover a new way to live, a new way to look at themselves, family, and friends, and blossom into joyful and hope filled people whom God intended them to be.”  

If you are experiencing a divorce now or have been divorced for years and still hold onto old hurt and pain, this series is for you! Trust the process. It works! Your life will change and you will feel joy and hope once more.
