Alumni Vocation Retreat
June 15-16, 2007
St. Norbert Abbey
Alumni retreat focuses on vocation in daily life
Alumni will have a special opportunity to reflect on the concept of vocation in their particular work and in their personal lives at a free retreat seminar next month.
St. Norbert’s program of Faith, Learning and Vocation (FLV) pilots this first Alumni Vocation Retreat June 15-16. Simple overnight accommodations and meals will be provided at St. Norbert Abbey.
FLV’s retreat seminars started as a service for faculty and staff in May 2001 and have grown in popularity and importance since then. Through input, reflection and discussion, retreat participants consider the concepts of call, gift and mission as they relate to their work, their personal relationships and their community involvement.
Julie Massey ’87, director of FLV and Campus Ministry, said, “FLV will help participants develop or deepen their understanding of vocation as a lifelong process. Retreat participants will look at vocation as an intersection of gift, passion and need, and reflect on their own vocational journeys, as well as being invited to consider ways in which they can share their wisdom with our current students.”
The Alumni Vocation Retreat is scheduled to take place at the Norbertine Center for Spirituality at St. Norbert Abbey. It will focus on questions like:
- What do I bring to the world that is unique?
- How do I know what I’m called to do?
- How does calling in the Christian tradition work?
- How does one balance multiple vocations and handle the places where they conflict?
