Jan. 31 is the final preregistration deadline for Stella Niagara’s Center of Renewal Ash Wednesday retreat day on Feb. 14.

Organizers said, “All in the Western New York community are invited to begin the Lenten season by participating in meaningful, values-based Ash Wednesday retreat-workshop, which will begin with check-in and morning coffee at 9 a.m., ending at 4 p.m. Distribution of ashes by Sr. Pat McMahon, OSF, and lunch will also be provided.”

Facilitated by Nancy P. Askins, Ph.D., executive director of the Center of Renewal, the retreat will include discussions, music, contemplative time, and multiple choices of reflective values-based activities designed to help retreatants prepare to enter the six weeks of Lent in a meaningful manner.

Advance reservations are required by 5 p.m. Jan. 31. No late reservations will be accepted due to multiple logistics limitations. For additional details or to preregister, call 716-754-7376, ext. 1.

Located on River Road, the Center of Renewal Retreat & Conference Center at Stella Niagara is sponsored by the Sisters of Saint Francis of Penance and Christian Charity, Holy Name Province.
