"An Extreme Makeover:

Our Journey through Lent"

Wednesdays: February 28, March 6 & 13, 2024

10:00 - 11:15 a.m. CT

at St. Scholastica Monastery


via Zoom

Lent is a marvelous time to take a deep look at our lives to see what needs to be changed in our love journey with the Lord.  When we make ourselves available to the Lord, amazing things can happen with our soul's makeover!

This Lenten Retreat will be given in three sessions, each developing themes to help us with our Extreme Makeover.

Part One:  February 28, 2024 will focus on Prayer and the Challenge of Hope.

Part Two:  March 6, 2024 we will talk about Choosing an Attitude of Gratitude and Embracing Suffering.

Part Three:  March 13, 2024 we will ponder and reflect on Repentance and Forgiveness.

Sessions build on one another, so our hope is that you are able to attend all three sessions. If this is not possible, please come to the session(s) that you can!

This retreat will be offered in a hybrid format, available to participants either in-person or by Zoom. For our in-person participants, we will meet at St. Scholastica Monastery each time.
