The Advisory Board for Christian Experience Weekends from the Archdiocese of Dubuque and spiritual director Mary Gannon Kaufmann from Cedar Rapids have developed an experience to address “what’s next” after a CEW weekend. The new retreat is called “Spirit Alive: A Charism Experience Weekend.” 

Two pilot weekends are slated in the Davenport Diocese: Oct. 14-15 at St. Patrick Church in Iowa City and Nov. 11-12 at Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace Church in Clinton.

The retreat is for people who want a living relationship with Jesus and to discover their unique spiritual gifts. Participants will learn a style of Ignatian prayer and discernment and discover a strategy for working and praying with their wounds or trouble spots to facilitate a freer, fuller life.

The weekend is for both men and women. The retreat runs Friday from 6:30-9:30 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Go to to register or to download and mail in the hard-copy brochure. For more information, contact Kaufmann at or (319) 431-8764.
