Sisters share ‘Light’ with employees
The theme of the 11th annual Employees Retreat Day was “Come into the light,’ but the morning and afternoon sessions had completely different definitions of the word.

In the morning Thursday (March 10), the 10 Nazareth Convent and Academy Corp. staff members taking part explored turning the light on themselves, as they leanrnd about the basics of personality types and how those impact relationships with others. That session was led by Sister Betty Suther.
In the afternoon, Sister Janet Lander used the word as part of lightheartedness, with games and activities designed both for fun and insight. Sister Liberata Pellerin also helped throughout the day.
The day at Manna House of Prayer in Concordia also included lunch, prizes and a chance for employees to get to know their colleagues better.
A second Retreat Day is scheduled for March 22.
Each year the sisters at Manna House offer a daylong retreat to all employees at the Motherhouse, Manna House and the CSJ Administrative Center, all in Concordia. It is a paid day for any of the nearly 70 NCAC employees who choose to take part.
