16.          Los Angeles Retreat Center Community:  Event Calendar Available

In a continuing effort to pool resources for those in need of spiritual nourishment and solace, the Los Angeles Retreat Center Community-comprised of five retreat centers in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles-has released an online event calendar.  The calendar provides a simple guide to prayer meetings, retreats, and other spiritual activities held at each of the five centers.  It is available at:

https://laretreatcenters.com/<https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Flaretreatcenters.com%2F&data=05%7C01%7Ceeobrien%40la-archdiocese.org%7C67690fe899b6470dbb4408da34f240f0%7Ca90c3e256ce644bca7ca47ee2af06f3f%7C0%7C0%7C637880513044430969%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C2000%7C%7C%7C&sdata=qeT65avuy%2FgqurP1KoP6lapxEavZHrw4XxmmDKVAmDE%3D&reserved=0>

Each center offers a wide variety of programs, catering to differing spiritual needs according to an individual's faith or disposition. This should make it considerably easier for individuals or groups to find events and activities that best meet their needs.



The calendar provides a listing of both online and onsite events.  Details of events are available on the calendar and include links to sign up online or via telephone.



The Los Angeles Retreat Center Community offers spiritual renewal and discovery for those looking for a deeper relationship with God.



The following are the current members of LARCC, offering a choice of locations, facilities, and programs to Los Angeles area residents that are convenient wherever they live and whatever their particular faith expression:

Soul Gardening: Sacrament of the Present Moment
Rev. Terry Hershey
6:00 pm Friday, August 12 to 1:30 pm Sunday, August 14, 2022
People who love the world, who pay attention, are gardeners, whether or not they have ever picked up a trowel ~ because gardening is not just about digging. Gardening is about cherishing ~ and to cherish, one must be present ...  Here! Now!  We see that the ordinary is the hiding place for the holy and ... open our heart to the rhythms of "the garden"; embrace the demanding marriage of loving and losing; cultivate appreciation for ordinary gifts of grace, the value of solitude, and the healing power of nature; nurture our soul, and renew our sense of life's fullness. Gardens are sacred places that can offer healing for mind, body, and soul. Experience our gardens as restorative, inspiring, & life-giving. Participate in outdoor & indoor workshops, exploring "sanctuary" gardens, with personal time for walks, prayer, rocking chairs, and reflection.  Terry Hershey is an author, humorist, inspirational speaker, ordained minister, and smitten by French wine. He divides his time between designing sanctuary gardens & sharing his practice of "pausing" & "sanctuary," to help us do less and live more. Terry's book, Sanctuary: Creating places for grace in your life, offers permission to slow down and to be gentle with ourselves. Most days, you can find Terry out in his garden-on Vashon Island in the Puget Sound - because he believes that there is something fundamentally spiritual about dirt under your fingernails. Cost: per person/shared $250; single $350; commuter $160

Sacred Expressions: Prayer of the Heart with Art
Rev. Paula Vukmanic
Saturday, September 10, 2022 9:00am to 12:30pm
You have a heart, an essence that is you.  Believing in and allowing your personal heart encounters with God to flow through you can lead you into a deeper and peace and loving awareness of the amazing self that you are.  How do you get in touch with what is being revealed within you?  "Prayer of the heart with art" will foster an inner listening, using introverted and extroverted forms of prayer.  Our session will explore the revelations of mandala making, poetry, the simplicity of the haiku and word collages to express our feeling and thoughts. We will experience silence, seeing, hearing, creating, walking and breathing in the Presence of God's inspiring Spirit. The Rev. Paula recently retired as Rector of St Francis Episcopal Church in Palos Verdes Estates. She is a professional artist and has exhibited in galleries for many years. Paula has given workshops, retreats and taught plein aire painting. Paula is a teacher, provided pastoral care, and led a parish as an Episcopal priest.
Cost: $40 per person (all materials included)

FREEDOM is the key promise of the completion of Steps 8 & 9.  Step 8 ~ Identify "harms": 1. How did you diminish them? Not what you did... but what was the impact on them! What you did that diminished the quality of their lives? Which of these areas were affected?  Physical; Emotional; Mental; Financial; Spiritual.  2.  What specifically can I do to balance the Justice scale? My change of behavior? My repair of damage?  Step 9 ~ Willingness to address the damage to complete the Forgiveness Process:  How do I prepare properly?  How do I make amends to people I can't find?  How do I make effective amends to people I should not contact? or who don't want contact with me?  How do I make amends to dead people?  What is the "Forgiveness Process"?  This will be a practical WORK-shop. Bring your questions, prepare to confront your unwillingness and to respond to your willingness. Together we'll share our experience and dialogue about being delivered to FREEDOM by bringing HEALING to others. Freedom is the result of rehabilitation of our relationship with Life, Ourselves & Others. Are you really willing to go to "...any length" for freedom from addiction & unmanageability? Have you completed Step 9? If not, are you willing to complete all your amends?  REALLY?

Weekend Healing Retreat: The Human Adventure
Fr. Pat Crowley, SSCC
6pm Friday, October 14 to 1:30pm Sunday, October 16, 2022
"To live with soul is to live with hope in the midst of discouragement and setbacks. Trust in the midst of struggle and the unknown future. Patience in the midst of trials and pain. Gratitude in the midst of ordinary life. Generosity in the midst of committed relationships." ~ from 'The Enduring Heart' by Wilkie Au. To recapture the vision of our human adventure is the aim of this
retreat. St. Paul in his epistle to the Philippians captures the theme very succinctly: "Brothers and Sisters, I do not think of myself as having reached the finish line. I give no thought to what lies behind but push on to what is ahead." ~ Philippians 3.13. The Retreat is an opportunity to experience 'sharings' on the Human Adventure, times for quiet reflection and prayer, personal ministry, and daily celebration of the eucharist. The sacrament of reconciliation will also be available for those wishing to avail themselves of the sacrament. There will be a general healing service on Saturday evening in the Chapel for all of those wishing to attend. Fr. Pat is a member of the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts in the Western Region of the United States Province. He has been actively involved in Healing Ministry for over forty years. He resides at the Community House in California.
Cost: per person/shared $250; single $350; commuter $160

Ongoing Programs Via Zoom:
Centering Prayer Group Practice 2022 ~ Improving Our Relationship with God
Greg Johnson & Herb Kaighan
Every Month Second & Fourth Wednesday, 7:30 to 9:00 PM Via Zoom (PST)
Centering Prayer is a practice to foster our relationship with God. It is a movement beyond conversation to communion and union with God. It prepares us for the gift of contemplation. Centering Prayer is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer or meditation; rather it casts new light and depth of meaning on all of the various ways we open ourselves to new levels of consciousness. Gather with us to practice. ALL are welcome to join in this experience. Greg Johnson is a lay contemplative and computer scientist by profession. He has been active in contemplative practice for over 30 years. Herb Kaighan is a retired professional who has been on a spiritual path since his youth. He leads workshops & retreats and is a trained spiritual director. He has authored 3 books on spiritual awakening & meditation.
