Join us at the AMRH to celebrate New Year’s Eve in a sacred way. People of all ages, single, dating and couples are invited. Arrival is at 5:00 p.m. New Year’s Eve and departure at 11:00 a.m. on New Year’s Day.

Theme: Making Gratitude an Intention of the Heart
Using the convergence of Story and Gratitude to discern, discuss, and demonstrate
gratitude as:

  • – providing the context & content for writing and living a good story
  • – revisiting the most joyful people & seminal events in our lives
    – an all purpose virtue & a mainstay in all love stories
    – having staying power while we reimagine our lives
    – an inoculation against greed, envy, & jealousy
    – a lifeline to hopefulness, happiness, peace, and personal well-being while using portions of my book to jump start my presentations and a search for footprints of gratitude in each attendee’s stories.

Director: Deacon Len Froyen
Deacon Len Froyen taught classes in educational psychology at UNI for 33 years. He was ordained a deacon in 1989 and worked with college students at St. Stephen the Witness Catholic Student Center and with the diaconate formation program for the Archdiocese of Dubuque. He and his wife Gail participated and coordinated the Sponsor Couple program at the student center and offered Sponsor Couple training sessions throughout the archdiocese.

During his years of teaching and ministry, he grew in his conviction that the virtue of gratitude was the seedbed for growth in all other virtues. This belief led to his authorship of the book Gratitude: Affirming One Another Through Stories. Deacon Len is officially retired as both a professor and deacon but continues to make home and hospital visits, serves as a spiritual director, a counselor, and Vincentian.

Deacon Len’s book Gratitude: Affirming One Another Through Stories is included in the retreat.

The fee for the retreat is $65.00 per person. As a “thank you” to the DREAMERS, they may deduct $5.00 if they worked on the DREAM weekend!

Knights of Columbus of Iowa Retreat

A Modern Man’s Journey to His Soul

At a time when the pillars of society around us are shaking; Catholic men must look again for a deeper sense of what it means to be a man of faith. Being men we look at the world through a man’s eyes. This perception colors how we think, how we feel, how we make sense out of the world around ourselves and how we relate to others and even how we relate to our creator.

During this retreat we will:

* Discuss how the life, death and resurrection of Christ impacts our humanity and our manhood.

* Explore how faith is a dynamic gift that grows and changes as we grow and change.

* Experience the invitation to the fullness of life in Christ.

* Embark on a life journey of transformation through grace.

* Envision our own deepest humanity through the eyes of Jesus’ humanity.

Through quiet reflection, prayer, Scripture, and Eucharist we will open our lives to the Spirit of God who created us to be men of faith, strength, wisdom and love.
