3 Phases of Changes: The Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery, after many years of reflection, prayer, and discussion, would like to share a three-phase plan for their future.
They have entered into a contract to sell 9.75 acres of land to Reliance Health Care, Inc. Reliance plans to build a 140-bed skilled nursing facility to include a 16 bed wing for the monastery’s senior sisters, which will be completed in approximately two years.
During Reliance’s construction phase, the sisters will make plans to build a new smaller monastery near the nursing home to allow them to maintain daily contact with their senior sisters and spend more time in prayer and ministry.

Alleluia, my soul! My soul, rejoice!
It is springtime, I hear it, in nature's voice.
I feel it, I know; for the south wind's breath
Brings me my Love and Adam's death.
And a white rose has bloomed on a hidden bush
in the orient light of Easter hush.
St. Ignatius of Antioch once wrote, "I am God's wheat, and I am to be ground by the teeth of wild beasts, so that I may become the pure bread of Christ." Using this passage as the image of the Christian life, we can say that sainthood consists of allowing ourselves to be made in to the Eucharistic Christ for one another. During this retreat we will look at/consider what it might mean to be transformed from "grains of wheat: into the" pure bread of Christ of which St. Ignatius spoke. Total Cost: Resident $195.00 Commuter: $150.00. A $50.00 non-refundable, non-transferable deposit is required at time of registration. Lodging and meals are included in the Resident price.

This Retreat is based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. This retreat is a time to practice silence in order to make room for God to work in your life and by this to strengthen your relationship with Him. In the silence you are better able to hear God’s invitation to open your heart and surrender your soul in a deeper way. Each day you will meet with a Spiritual Director to assist you in discerning God’s invitation and to offer suggestions to guide you during your silence. The Retreat opens with dinner at 6 p.m. on Thursday, January 8 and ends after lunch on Sunday for the 3-Day and after morning liturgy for the 5-Day and the 8-Day. Lodging and meals are included in the price. A $50.00 non-refundable, non-transferable deposit is required at time of registration.
