Celebrating Three Gifts of Autumn: Beauty, Letting Go, and Peace
with Melannie Svoboda, SND



Whether you love autumn or are saddened by its arrival, this weekend is meant for you. Nestled in mid-October, this retreat focuses on three gifts that the fall season wishes to bestow upon us: the sheer beauty of the season… the freedom to Let Go… and growth in inner Peace. We will explore how fall challenges us to trust in forces greater than ourselves. And we will see how the season can lead us to deeper inner peace in a world often marked by adversity and unrest. Our time together will include input, scripture, prayer, music, quiet time, humor, short videos, and sharing.



Melannie Svoboda, SND, is a Sister of Notre Dame of Chardon, OH who has ministered as a high school and college teacher, novice director, congregational leader, retreat leader, spiritual director, and writer. She earned an MA in English from Indiana University and an MA in Spirituality from Duquesne University.
