St. Scholastica Retreat Center, 1205 S. Albert Pike, Fort Smith will offer a weekend retreat, “Everywhere a Blessing: A Celtic Spirituality Retreat,” from October 27-29. Participants will reclaim their forgotten Celtic legacy as they celebrate the goodness of creation, the nearness of Saints, and the power of the Trinity in their midst. Presentations will utilize ancient poetry, art, song, storytelling, and Celtic Christianity’s beautiful legacy of prayers and blessings. Presenter Sister Therese Elias, OSB has been leading Celtic pilgrimages to Ireland, Scotland, England, and Wales since 1996. Her pilgrimage ministry began at the invitation of Esther de Wall, who mentored her in Celtic Spirituality.
