Hearts Burning Within Us (Luke 24:13-55)
Sponsored by: Benedictine Center
05/02/17 at 7:00PM - 9:00PM

Description: As we go about our days mindful of our own worries and responsibilities, we are not unlike the disciples walking the road to Emmaus. Jesus the Christ, risen and present, comes nearer to us than we first realize and waits for us to see. He is patient and attentive and made known clearly in the breaking of the bread. How do we experience the presence of Christ in the modern day and what are we called to do with “hearts burning within us”? Fr. Michael Byron is a theologian and pastor of St. Pascal

Living Waters: A Fly Fishing Retreat
Sponsored by: Benedictine Center
05/19/17 at 8:00AM - 7:00PM

Description: Something about fly fishing nourishes the contemplative spirit. You need not be an expert to ask: what does the sound of water, the movement of the fly, and the flash of a native Trout do to me? As a practice in attentiveness, fly fishing invites us to set down the busyness of our minds and our agendas and focus anew on what God is always doing within us. Take a day of streamside retreat with Sam Rahberg on his home waters in Southeast Minnesota. Immerse yourself in nature along with some spirit
