Ascension received cards from two of the three centers to which we sent teens and adults.  I'm posting the text of the cards here.

From Jonesville, VA:

Dear Ascension,

Thank you for a wonderful week 7!  Your positivity, energy, and love helped us end the summer on such a high note!  Thank you for all your hardwork, we wouldn't have made it without you!

It’s Spa time for your Soul
“We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass – grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.” Mother Teresa

Commit to a retreat this summer and embrace the beauty of Wisconsin, the strength that comes with solitude and the contagious energy of growth.
When people ask the question, “What you did you do on your summer vacation,” what a reply you will have!

Exploring Catholic Spiritualities for our Everyday Living 

Come, quench your thirst with something better than lemonade, wine or beer (although we will serve those, too).

Come, learn from and ask questions of these gifted speakers in our midst.
