Retirement and Purposeful Aging: What's Next in My Life?

As we emerge from the pandemic and as you consider your retirement years and grasp the reality of growing older, this retreat will explore the benefits and joys, as well as the challenges and concerns, ahead.

What have we learned from this past year? How do we live this stage of our life well and see aging as a blessing?

The combination of retirement and growing older provides an opportunity to live life differently and more contemplatively, moving from “doing” to “being.”

Discover how we can share our Spirit-given gifts, talents, and experience in new ways that bring joy to ourselves and others and give continued meaning and purpose to our lives.

Tuesday, May 18, to Thursday, May 20, 2021
The retreat begins at 6:30pm on Tuesday and concludes with the mid-day meal on Thursday.
Cost of $255 includes $55 non-refundable deposit, overnight accommodations, and meals.
