Personality Style: How it Shapes Our Interactions With Others - Elizabeth Lewis | July 20 -21
PERSONALITY AS EXPRESSION OF SPIRIT
July 20 –21, 2019
Registration begins at 8:00 Saturday. Continental breakfast will be available upon arrival until the program starts at 9:00. The retreat will conclude Sunday at 1:30 pm.
Why is it easy to communicate with some family members and even strangers, but not others? What personality traits and emotional characteristics make for good leadership? In what way is personality an expression of Spirit?
These questions lie at the heart of the Personality Styles workshop. Participants in this workshop will seek answers to these questions and more by investigating personality styles and types in the context of spiritual archetypes — psychological patterns of inner friends and foes that live within us and express themselves, for better or for worse, in our interactions with others. This workshop will help participants recognize, understand, and respond appropriately to their own and others’ personality traits or emotional characteristics. Through discussion; writing; guided meditations; and more, we will explore several facets of personality-as-spirit, including the following topics: our own patterns or archetypes; strategies for coping effectively with challenging people in work and home environments; and qualities that make for positive and effective leadership.

Nothing Can Separate Us: A Retreat For Those Left Behind by Suicide - Catherine Kuschel | August 23 -25
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 remain. 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 us, will also be a part of the weekend.
The Rev. 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-occurring conditions of drug addiction and mental illness. She has experience working with persons on 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.

Continuing The Journey: Widowhood Retreat - Lynn Hilts and Sue Soriano | August 24
Join us for this day designed to offer prayer and support as we begin to look back, not always with the pain of what we have lost, but with joy and appreciation for that life we have shared. We have much to learn from one another about the things that have helped and hindered us on this journey. We hope you will join us in exploring and savoring the ways in which our loved one still is, and will continue to be, a presence in our lives.
The retreat will be facilitated by Susan Soriano and Lynn Hilts, both of whom have experienced the loss of a spouse. Susan, a retired pastoral minister and director of faith formation, enjoyed many years of marriage and is the mother of five children. Lynn, a retired elementary school principal, also enjoyed many years of marriage and has a son.

Franciscan Living Retreat | September 27 - 29
We know that joy lies at the heart of Franciscan life. But how much do we really know about joy? Secular definitions of joy would have us believe that joy is a state of constant happiness, pleasure, or rejoicing. But those who strive to live Franciscan ideals rightly suspect that the
definition of joy is a little more complex. Come explore this intricate and fundamentally
Franciscan concept of joy, discovering how it shapes your innermost being while simultaneously leading you beyond yourself in companionship, compassion, and service to all of Creation. This contemplation of Franciscan Joy will be co-facilitated by Sr. Laura Nettles and Dr. Lori Randall. In facilitating our shared exploration of Franciscan joy, Sr. Laura will draw upon her education in Franciscan theology and her lived experience as a Franciscan Sister of Perpetual Adoration, LaCrosse, WI, while Dr. Lori will draw upon her experience as a Cap Corps volunteer living in community with the friars of the St. Anthony Friary, Marathon, WI. The retreat begins on Friday with supper, orientation, and an opportunity to attend evening prayer.
Sr. Laura Nettles is a Franciscan Sister of Perpetual Adoration who holds degrees in Music
Education, Moral Theology, and Franciscan Studies. She currently teaches courses in Religious Studies and Philosophy at Viterbo University while finishing her PhD in Theology from the
Chicago Theological Seminary.
Dr. Lori Randall is an alumna of the Capuchin Franciscan Volunteer Corps of the Midwest (Cap Corps). She completed her year of Cap Corps service right here at St. Anthony’s in 1999 and returned to St. Anthony’s in June of 2018 as Center Director after a 15-year career in
academia. She holds degrees in Modern Languages, Language Acquisition, and Language
Twelve-Step Serenity Retreat: Awakening Our Creative Self in Recovery - Ruth Hoenick | October 4 -6
Awakening Our Creative Self in Recovery is about being willing to make the 12 step program of recovery our own. Each participant will walk through the steps while creating a language that works for their recovery, setting aside language that is a barrier to recovery and creating new language that resonates with their heart. There will be discussion of how to live creatively and spiritually in the here and now, looking at how to stay in the present and the presence of a higher power. Each person will examine how to create a new you while trusting that process of a self examination and sharing. Lastly, various movements, prayers, and multi-media will be used as participants will explore their own style of prayer and meditation. Awakening Our Creative Self in Recovery is a retreat for those wanting to make changes, small or large, to their connection with self and the divine.
Ruth Hoenick is a recovering member of Alcoholics Anonymous and grateful member of Al Anon since 1986. She is actively involved in both programs in sponsorship and service work. Ruth is a wife, mother and grandmother.

Book of Revelation - Fr. Jim Bartelme | November 16
What is this book really all about? The end times? The future? Or have many of the things described already happened? We will take a basic historical overview of this most “mysterious” of Bible books, and conclude with taking a look at various passages, some suggested by you, the participants. Know that some of the symbolism may never be explained or understood. Hopefully, you will see that this book is not something to fear, but to explore with a sense of hope and faith. Please bring your bible.
Fr. Jim Bartelme grew up in Wausau, and was originally ordained for the diocese of Pueblo, CO. He returned to Wisconsin and the diocese of Superior several years later, and retired from active ministry three years ago. He has previously presented two weekend retreats, and some briefer presentations on St. Paul, and St. Luke, here at St. Anthony’s.
