Living our Retirement: The Next Chapter
Are you nearing retirement?
Have you recently or not-so-recently retired?
Are you in or near your senior years, maybe still working full-time?
On this retreat, we will
- Look at ways for dealing with the transition into retirement.
- Identify unfinished life issues and discern what to do about them.
- Create a plan for what to do tomorrow.
The purpose is to allow our relationship with God to help us to live our senior years fully.
This retreat weekend will include presentations, conversation, group sharing, time for quiet reflection, prayer and liturgy. While based on the Christian Scriptures, the day is open to persons of all faith traditions. Guided by Fr. Michael Schleupner. Lunch is included.
