Are giving up something for Lent, or letting go?

Posted: Friday, February 2, 2018

What if giving up something for Lent is really about letting go of what keeps us from growing in Christ? Victory Noll Center is offering a Lenten retreat, Conversion into Freedom. The retreat will explore what prevents us from responding to God’s invitations in our everyday lives.

The retreat begins Friday, February 16, at 7 p.m. and goes through Saturday, February 17 at 1 p.m.

Sue Wilhelm, director of Victory Noll Center, will lead participants through the Gospels, and the writings of Thomas Merton, John of the Cross and Therese of Avila to understand the meaning of dying to self and rising to new life in Christ. Prayer, reflection, sharing will be part of this experience. There is a cost. Please register online by Friday, February 9, 2018.

Victory Noll Center is located at 1900 W. Park Drive. For more information call (260) 200-1740, email or visit the website at
