Victory Noll Center is offering a number of retreats over the next four months, with opportunities to delve deeper into personal faith and for strengthening relationships with God and the world.
All the retreats will be held on the beautiful Victory Noll campus, located at 1900 W. Park Drive in Huntington. The campus of Victory Noll offers sacred spaces outside to walk with God including labyrinth, nature trails, and Stations of the Cross.
There will be an Easter retreat, “Becoming Fire!,” running from Thursday, March 31 to Sunday, April 3. A directed retreat at Easter offers a special time to savor our participation in the Resurrection of Christ and preparing for the great Feast of Pentecost.
This retreat will offer time for listening, and drawing close to Christ with “our hearts burning within us.” Retreatants usually spend three to five prayer periods per day depending on one’s prayer rhythm. Prayer journaling and dialogue prayer will be included in the spiritual practices of this retreat.
Retreat leaders for this event are Sr. Nancy Brousseau, OP, D. Min, Sue Wilhelm, D.Min, & Ken Greble. Cost is $295 single occupancy with meals included. Early registration is encouraged, and full payment is required seven days before the beginning of the retreat.
Terry Hershey returns in April. Join us for a retreat that will open your heart to the sanctuary of God's compassionate love and Mercy. Hershey will present “Sanctuary: The Presence of Mercy and Compassion” from Friday, April 15 to Saturday, April 16. He will tell stories of grace and inspiration as well as sharing his gift of seeing the world with new eyes. Spending a moment or a day with him is more than an experience, it is an adventure that will leave you longing for more and yet feeling full and satisfied.
The cost is $75 and includes accommodations and retreat. For commuters not staying overnight at Victory Noll, the cost is $50. Terry Hershey’s website is www.terryhershey.com. Continental breakfast and Saturday noon meal are included for all. Please register by April 7.
“Visio Divina Retreat: Seeing with the Eyes of the Heart” will take place from Friday, April 29, to Saturday, April 30. Visio Divina is actually the practice of Lectio Divina — Sacred Reading — but instead of using text, it uses Icons, or images (such as art) or God’s own beautiful gifts in nature. All of these help one to open the heart to Christ’s presence and revelation. This retreat will allow participants to experience the four movements of this prayer that has its roots in Scripture and the desert Fathers and Mothers.
The retreat is facilitated by Sue Wilhelm, D. Min, director of Victory Noll Center. Cost is $75 and includes accommodations. The cost is $50 for commuters. Continental breakfast and Saturday noon meal are included for all. Please register by April 22.
The final event is a directed retreat, “Walk With God,” which will be a week-long event beginning Monday, June 6, and running through Friday, June 10. Directed retreats offer extended time to slow down and tend the Holy. It is a time to refresh one’s spirit walking with God and responding to that relationship through solitude, silence, and prayer. Each day retreatants are invited to spend several prayer periods of about one hour each. In addition, each retreatant meets daily with a retreat director in order to reflect more deeply on the experience of the day.
Retreat leaders are Sue Wilhelm, D.Min., & Sr. Wanda Wetli, CSJ. The cost is $350 single occupancy with meals included. Early registration is encouraged, and full payment is required seven days before the beginning of the retreat.
