Annunciation Monastery retreat set for March 5

The Oblates of Annunciation Monastery, Bismarck, will meet at the monastery from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 5 for a Lenten retreat.

Sister Kathleen Atkinson will offer a day of reflection and sharing on the book, "The Road to Eternal Life."

"Lent is a time that invites all people to a more intentional journey of spiritual growth. Using the Prologue of the Rule of Benedict as a lens, this retreat will consider the training we undertake, the terrain through which we journey and the travel companions at our side," Atkinson said.

Oblates are women and men of varied faiths who associate themselves with a monastery and live according to the Rule of St. Benedict as their state in life permits.

There is no charge to attend.

Good Shepherd to host 'Into the Wild' Lenten service

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church will host an "Into the Wild" Lenten service each Wednesday, beginning March 1 at 12:10, 5:30 and 7 p.m.

Lenten dinners will be served by youth from 5 to 7 p.m. Freewill offerings will be accepted. Services follow Jesus into the wilderness and allow for reflection on individual journeys into the “wild places” of the world where human need, abuse of power, risk and God’s grace are encountered.

Opportunities to help others include a Reverse Lent project, in which items needed by those in the community can be gathered. another opportunity includes the Small Change Makes a PIG Difference mission project, in which individuals can fill a piggy bank to help feed the hungry around the world.

Good Shepherd is located on the corner of Washington Street and Divide Avenue. Visit
