Sister Noreen Walter. SCL will direct our retreat: Rest Stops for the Soul. S. Noreen Walter, SCL is the director of Marillac Center. She has given retreats and workshops in the United States and Canada. Sister Noreen’s sense of humor and delight in life encourage others to live life to the fullest. She inspires others with stories and examples from life! Her fifteen years in secondary education, along with her work in pastoral ministry and vocation ministry have led others to live in-spired lives with purposeful living. Sister Noreen holds a master’s degree in Pastoral Studies from Loyola Marymount University.
S. Noreen offers these words in anticipation of the 2016 retreat: Rest Stops for the Soul will introduce a Spirituality of Balance, recognizing the value and importance of relationships (with God, ourselves and others), and taking time to see that all of life is a holy festival, that all of life is holy. How do we recognize God in the midst of our ordinary daily lives? All of this will be looked at and experienced as we relax, reflect and renew ourselves at Legendary Lodge.
You really should come!
All meals will be prepared by an enthusiastic kitchen crew lead by Julie Johnson of SS Cyril and Methodius in East Helena. Arrival is Friday afternoon at 4 pm. Guests will be greeted at the boat dock and escorted across the water to the main lodge. Once everyone is settled we will enjoy a fine dinner, our first session, praise and worship music and night prayer followed by a campfire.
Saturday morning starts bright and early with morning prayer with Sister Noreen. Our cooks promise that the coffee will be ready at sunrise. Following a lovely breakfast we will have two more presentations and wrap up the morning with a nice lunch at noon. The afternoon will be an opportunity for rest, relaxation, reflection and Stations of The Cross. All of the camp amenities will be available for your enjoyment. Swimming, hiking, canoeing, fishing etc. Safety first. All participants will be expected to wear a life vest when boating.
We will gather at 4 pm for Sister Noreen to wrap up the retreat. You won’t go home hungry. Appetizers will be served before our 5 pm departure!
