St. Benedict Center events planned
From Here to Hope: Our Mission of Mercy is a one-day retreat scheduled for Oct. 14 with Father Joseph Nassal, a Missionary of the Precious Blood from Liberty, Missouri. This retreat will explore in both practical and prophetic ways how to live God’s tender mercy in everyday lives. Program fee is $30. Lunch is available at the center for $10.50.
One-person Theater: Far as the Eye Can See is a performance scheduled for Oct. 15 celebrating Nebraska’s 150th birthday by actor Pippa White. This show tells true stories of the prairie and its people: the early pioneers who crossed it, the later pioneers who settled it, the brave people of the Dust Bowl and the Native American people who struggled to keep the prairie that once belonged only to them. White calls her productions “part theater, part storytelling, part history.” She has an extensive background in theater and television, including five years as a hostess on daily morning television at ABC in San Francisco. Advance and senior/student tickets are $7. Tickets are $9 at the door.
You are Enough! A Retreat for Women is scheduled for Oct. 21-22 with Mary Guynan, Tonya LeGrande and Vicki Pribil. This retreat is for women of all ages. The weekend will include presentations, prayer, guided meditation, shared reflection and an opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Adoration and Mass.
St. Benedict Center is located 4 miles north of Schuyler on Highway 15 and a quarter-mile east.
