    "Sacred Journeys"

    with Rev. Fran Schmidt, Saskatoon

    Rev. Fran is the Director of Communication and Development at Lutheran Theological Seminary in Saskatoon.

    Join Pastora Fran Schmidt, former missionary to Peru, who invites you to come along on a Sacred Journey. We will explore how, where, and when Jesus meets us in often unexpected ways, much like how Jesus accompanied the disciples on the road to Emmaus. We will engage our discussion through the lens of Pastora Fran's travels to Peru, El Salvador, Colombia, India and Nepal. If you want to learn about these countries and cultures, and reflect on the places and ways that God has accompanied you in your life's journey, this is the retreat for you!

    Travel/Prayer Journals

    with Rev Deb Kerr, Calgary.

    Deb will lead us in a couple of optional crafts (additional fee applies). She will work with us to make beautiful leather prayer or travel journals for your journeys ($50), or leather crosses/ coasters ($20).

    This weekend is a great way for moms and daughters, sisters, close friends or new acquaintances to spend a weekend with God and each other. Let us cook the meals and clean up while you enjoy time to relax, learn, and laugh.

    With time to enjoy good company, joyful laughter, delicious food, and creative crafts- this will be a weekend you won't want to miss!  We will also offer massages on Saturday afternoon (additional fee applies), and plenty of silliness to go around.

    Take a look at the schedule.
