'Unplugged: Time for Reflection'
The First in Our Brown Bag Lunch Series
Presented by Fr. Jim Farrell

Wouldn't it be great to have a few hours set aside to step away from everything, all the demands of daily life? No TV, computer, cell phone or other worldly distractions? If you would like to have a few 'unplugged' hours, come away to Fatima for our new 'Brown Bag Lunch' series where Fr. Jim Farrell will lead you to step away for a short time to refresh and renew.

As part of the Brown Bag Series, we will not serve a meal but encourage you to bring your own lunch if you desire. Beverages will be served.

We will begin with registration from 10:45 -11:15 am and conclude by 1:30 pm, however if you would like to take a little more time for yourself you are welcome to stay longer. You will also receive a copy of Fr. Jim's "Pathways to Prayer: Volume III" as our gift to you for helping us kick off this new program series.

$15 per person

'The Desert Calls: A Weekend Lenten Retreat with Sr. Catherine Griffiths, SND'

In the Old Testament we read, "I will allure her: I will lead her into the desert and speak to her heart." What is God calling me to as God speaks to me during these Lenten days? is it a call to give myself over, to depend totally on the One who draws me to God's self? Lent is a time of conversion, a time to look more deeply at my life with God and others. Come join us as we pray, reflect, and share on the presence and wonder of God in each of our lives.

Sr. Catherine Griffiths, SND is an experienced retreat presenter and spiritual director who has directed retreats in Africa, Europe and the U. S. For the last 14 years she has spent every January directing 30 day retreats (Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius) for the Divine Word Missionary novices. For the past 35 years she has been praying with people for inner healing. Sr. Catherine is also trained in Focusing Prayer.

Check-in will begin at 7:00 pm Friday with the program starting at 8:00 pm. The retreat will conclude by 1:00 pm on Sunday.

$153/person, $286/couple

'An FBI, Fatima & Benedict Inn, Evening of Reflection with Sr. Carol Falkner, OSB'

Each day we have an opportunity to welcome others into our life or to be welcomed by another. St. Benedict says 'Treat all guests as Christ'. During this Lenten evening we will reflect on how we can make hospitality a way of life through prayer, attentive listening and performing acts of kindness for others. We will also consider how to receive hospitality graciously.

Sr. Carol Falkner presently serves as the administrator of the Benedict Inn Retreat and Conference Center, a ministry owned and operated by the Sisters of St. Benedict. She is a trained spiritual director and retreat presenter. She enjoys sharing the wisdom of St. Benedict with a variety of audiences.

$30 per person

The evening will begin with an optional Mass at 5:00 pm followed by a buffet dinner and the program. The evening will conclude no later than 9:00 pm.
