Holy Week Retreat: Becoming the Beloved Disciple of John’s Gospel

During Holy Week (March 20-27, 2016) this retreat will help us prayerfully ponder the Gospel of John so we can discover the richness they contain for a deeper following of Jesus in our own lives – so we too can become “beloved disciples.” CLICK HERE for details and to register.

Seasonal Spirituality

Explore the connection between the seasons of the year and the seasons of our lives. Join us for a day of prayer, journaling and contemplation to reflect on the rhythm of the natural world’s cycle. It’s like a mini-vacation. Renew your mind, body and spirit. CLICK HERE to find out more about our next offering and register today.

Saturday Retreats

Sometimes we just need a day away… to reflect, to study, to pray, or just to be. You’ll also find these workshops and retreats listed under their individual categories, but they’re gathered here for people who have a free Saturday and want to experience something new. CLICK HERE for the list of what’s coming up on a Saturday soon.

 Quilting

Whether you’re experienced or just learning to quilt, a weekend quilting retreat at Manna House is the ideal place to focus. You can spend quality time quilting in a relaxed and enjoyable place. Learn new techniques while creating a new project or working on a UFO (Unfinished Object). CLICK HERE to see what’s on the schedule and then register today!

Lacemaking

Bobbin lacemaking takes us back to the earliest history of the Sisters of St. Joseph in 17th century France. And yet as a modern contemplative practice, it creates in us heart-space where our communion with God  may be woven into our lives, as surely as the design of threads and spaces unfolds at our fingertips. CLICK HERE for details on our next offering!

The Power of Art

There have always been gifted artists among the Sisters of St. Joseph — and now they are sharing both their ideas and their inspirations in new workshops and retreats. In 2015, we offer two of these special opportunities. CLICK HERE for details and to register.

 ‘Have retreat, will travel’

Sister Janet Lander can bring many of our retreats to you — at retirement or retreat centers, motherhouses or other facilities of religious congregations. These weeklong guided retreats generally include morning and evening prayer, creative or contemplative activities and a daily reflection guide. Each of these programs can also be offered as an “Elder Retreat,” a three-day format specifically designed for assisted care and similar facilities. To learn more, CLICK HERE.

Sabbaticals & personal retreats
