WOMEN'S RETREAT: SEPT. 12-14, 2014



$100 per person for everything, 5:00 P.M Friday until noon Sunday


     This year our Women’s Fall Retreat at St. Benedict Lodge will be on September 12th, 13th, and 14th, and  feature Sr. Jodi Min, O.P.   Sr. Jodi is an Oakford Dominican who spent the early years of her ministry teaching high school before being called more directly to work for her Oakford Congregation as Formation Director, and Vocation Promoter. She spent eight years as Director of Oakford Outreach Projects, which were short term mission projects for the poor sponsored by the Oakford Sisters. Most recently, she has been working with the Christian Brothers as the Assistant Director of Lasallian Mission at St. Mary's College. This coming year she has earned a sabbatical. Fr. Kieran claims that she has put together some of the best audio-visual presentations that he has ever seen.

    Jodi will be looking at the human problem of finding balance in our lives. For us Dominicans the very problem is layed out in our legislation when we try to live a simple life style while living in community, and have a prayer life- all the while trying to help others in our very active ministries. All of us need to identify  our own elements that need balancing. Above all we all need to give each other tips of how to pull off some sort of balance. A retreat of its nature is the trying to find balance!  

The retreat begins with supper at 6 pm Friday, Sept 12th and ends with brunch on Sunday morning. Contact us at 541 822-3572 or to make a reservation.
