St. Benedict Center events planned
Saints Come in Clusters: St. Dominic, Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati and St. John Paul II is a retreat scheduled for Sept. 22-24 with Father Marcus Knecht and Teresa Monaghen, co-sponsored by the Pro Sanctity Movement. The event will highlight three male saints starting with St. Dominic, who influenced Pier Giorgio Frassati (from Italy), who, in turn, impacted many young people, as well as adults, including St. John Paul II. Learn these men’s secrets for holy lives, how they influenced each other to sainthood and let them inspire you for your journey of holiness.
The Foundational Intimacy: Eucharist as a Model for Marriage is a retreat scheduled for Sept. 30 through Oct. 1 with EWTN and Spirit Catholic Radio presenters Jim and Maureen Otremba from Minnesota. In this energetic presentation, married couples are invited to explore parts of the liturgy including gathering, repentance, breaking open the Word and partaking of the very Body and Blood of Christ. Applying insights gained and practicing skills for enhancing intimacy, spouses are renewed in their love for the Eucharist and their sacrament of marriage. Includes talks, personal and couple reflection time, Mass and Reconciliation.
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.
