The sixth annual Women's Retreat at Legendary Lodge on Salmon Lake is a 25 hour opportunity for women, age 21 and older, to experience "The Lodge" and explore their faith. Guests are asked to bring their own sleeping bag, pillow, shower towel, beach towel, swimsuit (optional), hiking shoes (optional), and prayerful spirit.

Sister Noreen Walter. SCL has agreed to return for a fourth retreat! Living a Grace-filled Life - Gratefulness. S. Noreen Walter, SCL is the director of Marillac Center. She has given retreats and workshops in the United States and Canada. Sister Noreen’s sense of humor and delight in life encourage others to live life to the fullest. She inspires others with stories and examples from life! Her fifteen years in secondary education, along with her work in pastoral ministry and vocation ministry have led others to live inspired lives with purposeful living. Sister Noreen holds a master’s degree in Pastoral Studies from Loyola Marymount University.

S. Noreen offers these words in anticipation of the 2019 retreat: Join us at beautiful Legendary Lodge where we will explore living with gratitude in all the events that we encounter on the journey of life.  In a world where we experience darkness this retreat will explore the joyful light of Christ and the yearnings for seeing more. This time of reflection will lead us to a way of living a grateful life. Don’t miss it! Our time together will include input sessions, personal reflection time and sharing.

You really should come! We are not, at this time, able to offer accommodations for babies but have plenty of fridge space to store expressed milk.

All meals will be prepared by an enthusiastic kitchen crew lead by Julie Johnson. Arrival is Friday afternoon at 4 pm. Guests will be greeted at the boat dock and escorted across the water to the main lodge. Once everyone is settled we will enjoy a fine dinner, our first session, praise and worship music and night prayer followed by a campfire.

Saturday morning starts bright and early with options for Nidra Meditation and a hike up the mountain to the cross before breakfast. Our cooks promise that the coffee will be ready at sunrise. Following a lovely breakfast we will have morning prayer with Sister Noreen, two more presentations and conclude the morning with a nice lunch at 12:45 pm.

The afternoon will be an opportunity for rest, relaxation, reflection and Stations of The Cross (with Kori Dee). All of the camp amenities will be available for your enjoyment including: Swimming, hiking (lakeside-easy to moderate), canoeing (paddle boats and kayaks), fishing, lake tours via pontoon boat and a craft on the porch (see below). Safety first. All participants will be expected to wear a life vest when boating.

Vicki Burgmeier will offer a craft on the front porch from 1:15 to 3:00 pm. Join her for a draw and paint note-card that will be drawn by you on the outside and painted with watercolor pencils. It won't take too long to produce and dry!! It can be an extension of a personal reflection drawn from what you've heard during the retreat. Vicki will provide thorough instructions :)

We will gather at 3:45 pm on the Lincoln House patio for a group photo and then move inside at 4 pm for Sister Noreen to wrap up the retreat. You won't go home hungry. Appetizers will be served before our 5 pm departure!
