September 23, 2021

Last fall, I had the opportunity to attend the Welcome Weekend provided by the ladies here at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church. Never was a weekend more welcomed than those two days!

As anticipated, the Welcome weekend provided an excellent opportunity for me to be still,…

September 23, 2021

There is still time to sign up for this year’s Welcome Weekend. As the social-media saturated culture of the world around us continues to take on an increasingly strange tilt, our retreat theme, Anchored in Christ, couldn’t come at a more opportune time.

God’s Plan

September 16, 2021

I know from experience that God places people on our paths for very specific reasons. That’s why not everyone stays in our lives and why some never leave! We shouldn’t try to figure it out because there are no straight lines in God’s plans.  The Welcome Weekend I attended was the perfect example of people…

You’re never alone!

September 9, 2021

I have been to other retreats in my time. But last year when I went to the Welcome weekend, it was special to me. The women of the parish put it on and you could see the hard work they put into it so that we could find out we are not alone on our…

Take the step…

August 19, 2021

What is missing in your life? What would a Welcome Weekend offer me?  Attending a Welcome Weekend might help you answer these questions.  I can’t give you your answers, but I can tell you what answers I found to these questions. Before I attended, I felt like I needed something and that something kept nagging at me.  I was…
