Franciscan Sister on Point Catholic Busy Student Retreat Team

Invited for the recent Point Catholic Busy Student Retreat, Stevens Point, Wisconsin, Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity Sister Julie Ann Sheahan served on the team of directors ministering to 60 students who committed themselves to the week. Campus Minister Wendy Mitch and Father Tom Lindner planned and organized the retreat with the theme ‘Get Centered’.

Students committed themselves to the following things:

  • Set aside time each day for four days to pray on your own.
  • Meet with spiritual director for a half hour each day for four days.
  • Dinner will be served every night. Join as your schedule allows.
  • Join retreat participants for praise and preaching each night. And if your schedule allows, gather for Mass each day.

Knowing students have just begun to learn the ways in which God is part of their daily lives, retreatants also received helps for what to do after the retreat on how to develop patterns of personal prayer so their relationship with God can continue to grow. This included reading the Scripture readings used at daily Mass and St. Ignatius’ examen.

Other Retreat directors included: Father Frank Corradi, Father Dennis Lynch, Alexian Brother Patrick McCabe, Marge McCardle, Father Billy Dodge, Sister Stephanie Spandl, SSND, Pat Pintens and Sister Sandy Setterland, SSJ-TOSF.
