EUCHARISTIC SERIES | Wednesdays from February 17 - March 24, 2021

 

“BECOMING THE EUCHARIST WE CELEBRATE” SERIES

 

 

Since last year’s Lenten series was short-circuited by the pandemic, we are offering the opportunity for discussion again for this Lent. 

If you have ever wanted a more profound understanding of the Eucharist, this series is for you.  Using a series of lectures recorded by Fr. Dan Crosby, OFM Cap, we will examine the reason we call it a celebration of the Eucharist.  With the help of these lectures you can uncover a fuller meaning and challenge in the gift of the Eucharist.

Discover how to become rooted in that fuller meaning by exploring Scripture, the example of the Church Fathers, and the Eucharistic liturgy itself.  Understand how to incorporate that fullness into your own life through the action that takes place during the words of institution themselves and through the example of people like Francis of Assisi and Archbishop Romero.

Each talk will be followed by an opportunity for discussion and sharing among the participants. The group will be facilitated by Marge Lindell, a member of St. Anthony’s resident community. The series of six sessions will be offered beginning Ash Wednesday, February 17th  from 1:30 to 3:30 in the afternoon, and continuing weekly through March 24th.  Even if you cannot attend each week, you are welcome to participate as often as you are able.  There is no fee to
attend, but please call to let us know which session(s) you will attend.  Free will offerings will be gratefully accepted.

Please plan to join us as we discuss all you want to know about the revered tradition of the
celebration of the Eucharist and its hope for the world. 

Masks or face coverings are required

THE LANGUAGE OF THE EMOTIONS | February 19 - 20, 2021

 

THE LANGUAGE OF THE EMOTIONS

Presented by Elizabeth Lewis

 

 

Emotions – especially the uncomfortable ones we judge as bad – hold a tremendous amount of energy; we’ve all experienced what happens when we repress or blindly express anger, anxiety and fear.  Learning to ask the question: “what are my feelings trying to tell me?” can help us to welcome uncomfortable emotions and receive their wisdom so that we can safely and effectively move toward resolution and inner balance, thus promoting a deeper sense of connection with our best selves and those around us.

In this workshop, we will explore how to embrace your full spectrum of feelings – from anger and fear to joy and more – so that you can more skillfully work with your own and others’ emotions with fluency and ease. This workshop experience will include: discussion; visual journaling; writing; guided meditations and visualizations; and more.

 

Cost: $105

Registration begins at 3 pm on Friday, followed by orientation at 6:00 and supper at 6:30.
The retreat concludes at 4:30 on Saturday afternoon

Guests will be asked to wear a mask or face covering in common areas except at mealtimes.
We strongly encourage each guest to bring his/her own face covering; however, a limited number of masks will be available for those who do not have their own.

CAREGIVER RETREAT: FROM DEPLETION TO RENEWAL | February 21 (8 am - 4 pm) 2021

 

CAREGIVER RETREAT: From Depletion to Renewal
Presented by Elizabeth Lewis

 

A caregiver is defined as a professional or family member who provides for the care and well-being of others. Most caregivers find that being there when needed is a rewarding core value.

Over time, however, the ongoing responsibility of caregiving can deplete and overwhelm even the most resilient among us, manifesting in emotional, mental, and spiritual exhaustion as well as physical illness. Moreover, an overwhelmed and depleted caregiver often experiences a sense of disconnect not only from those in his or her care but also from his or her own best self.

Both personal and professional caregivers can prevent this type of exhaustion and disconnect by learning resilience-building skills that lead from depletion to renewal. Come, explore these skills in this one-day workshop, which will help participants accomplish the following: 1) learn about secondary traumatic stress, 2) identify the causes, signs, and symptoms of secondary traumatic stress, 3) recognize the symptoms of compassion fatigue and caregiver depletion, 4) develop a self-care action plan, and 5) implement strategies and tools for renewal.

This workshop is recommended for family and professional caregivers alike. Professional caregivers can include teachers, chaplains, therapists, social workers, nurses, doctors, spiritual directors, and more.

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.

A TIME TO HEAL: A Retreat for Those Left Behind by Suicide |March 12 - 14, 2021

When a spouse or significant other, child, relative, friend, work colleague, or even an acquaintance dies by suicide, a trail of unanswered questions and pain remains. This uncertainty and sorrow make it difficult, if not seemingly impossible, for those left behind to grieve and to find healing. The grieving process will be addressed at this retreat through an exploration of the spiritual, theological, and psychological dimensions surrounding death by suicide. Participants in this retreat will have opportunities to engage in quiet reflection as well as to make connections with others who have lost a loved one to suicide. Prayer services, including a service of remembrance and healing for those who have been lost to use, will also be part of the weekend.

Catherine Kuschel, M. Div, MAC, LPCC, LADC, is a licensed mental health therapist and drug and alcohol counselor in the State of Minnesota, where she works at a residential treatment facility for women suffering from the co-occuring conditions of drug addiction and mental illness. She has experience working with persons o both sides of the suicide issue: those who have attempted and survived, and those who have been left behind by someone who died by suicide. Catherine is also an ordained minister in the Episcopal Church, serving a small congregation in New Richmond, WI, and is a trained spiritual director.

Check in begins at 5 pm on Friday, followed by orientation at 6:00 and supper at 6:30.
An opportunity to attend Catholic Mass will be provided on Saturday evening, and an ecumenical worship service will be conducted on Sunday morning.
The retreat concludes after the noon meal on Sunday.

Guests will be asked to wear a mask or face covering in common areas except at mealtimes.
We strongly encourage each guest to bring his/her own face covering; however, a limited number of masks will be available for those who do not have their own.

2021 KNOW YOUR FAITH SERIES: The Social Justice Teachings of the Church | Thursdays from April 22 - October 28, 2021

2021 KNOW YOUR FAITH SERIES:
The Social Justice Teachings of the Church

 

As followers of Jesus, we have been called to love one another as Jesus loved us.   Jesus  identified with and reached out to  “the least of these,” the hungry and the stranger (cf. Mt 25:45).   Jesus taught by word and example that every person is invaluable and worthy of respect as a member of the human family.  Jesus showed us that human dignity comes from God, not from any human quality or accomplishment.   How we view others, how we treat others, and how we care for the most vulnerable members of society is referred to as social
justice.

Social justice is an essential component of living our faith.
Social justice teaching emerges from the truth of what God has revealed to us about who God is and the depth of God’s love for us and for all creation.   We invite you to join us as we explore the seven tenets of social justice teaching in our 2021 Know Your Faith series.  The presentations will be held from 6:30-8 pm on the 4th Thursday of each month from April through
October.  You may participate via Zoom meeting or by gathering with us at St. Anthony’s in the Solanus Center.

April 22: Solidarity –Fr. Steve Brice and Bob Wolensky, Professor (Emeritus) of Sociology & Social Work at UWSP, will discuss the issue of economic inequality in our country and the call to be in solidarity with workers instead of seeking personal profit.

May 27: Life and Dignity of the Human Person – Fr. Tom Lindner will explore the “seamless garment” teachings of Pope Francis and Cardinal Bernardin.

June 24: Care for God’s creation: Fr. Dennis Lynch will explore our Common Home.

July 22: Call to Family, Community and Participation

August 26: Option for the Poor and Vulnerable

September 23: Dignity and Rights of Workers – Fr. Matt Marshall. Dignity and Rights of Workers – Using the Scripture passage, “…he did this on a sabbath” as the basis for his reflection, Fr. Matt Marshall will explore how work is a way to create with and for God and others.

October 28: Rights and Responsibilities – Fr. Al Burkhardt discussing Pacem in Terris (Peace on Earth), a papal encyclical issued by Pope John XXIII on 11 April 1963 on the rights and obligations of individuals and of the state, as well as the proper relations
between states.

Free-will donations encouraged.
