July 7, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - July 14, 2017 @ 12:30 pm

Presented by Sister Melannie Svoboda, SND

Sometimes we ask: “Where is God in my life?” This retreat explores some possible answers to that question. Based on her book, Everyday Epiphanies, the retreat ponders not only some of the great epiphanies in scripture, but also the great and small epiphanies in our everyday life: the wonder of nature, friendship, the experience of love, adversity and pain, prayer and hope. Using scripture, music, stories, and poetry, Sister will help lead us deeper into the Mystery of God—the God who seeks us more than we can imagine.

Sister Melannie Svoboda has been a Sister of Notre Dame of Chardon, OH for over 51 years. During that time she has served as a high school and college teacher, novice director, and provincial (president) of her congregation. She also ministered in the Jesuit novitiate in Detroit for six years. Currently she writes and gives talks and retreats nationally.

A free-lance writer, her articles have appeared in America, Catholic Digest, Living With Christ, National Catholic Reporter, Liguorian, Living Faith, Review for Religious, and Country Woman. She is also the author of thirteen books including Traits of a  Healthy Spirituality; When the Rain Speaks: Celebrating God’s Presence in Nature; With the Dawn Rejoicing: A Christian Perspective on Pain and Suffering; The Lord Is My Shepherd  (Twenty-Third Publications); and Gracious Goodness  (Loyola Press) and Gospels on the Go (NCEA).
