'Next Chapter' explores life in retirement

Dr. Dan and Marlene Lischwe walked their dog, Sonny, around their neighborhood on May 7. The couple recently completed St. Louis University’s Next Chapter program, a six-month guided journey to help retirees and soon-to-be retirees discern their futures in the Ignatian Tradition.

Chris Brescia, and Marlene and Dr. Dan Lischwe certainly were part of the target audience for the first cohort of St. Louis University's "Next Chapter" program.

• Brescia, 64, was recently retired at the beginning of the program in September 2017. He jokingly refers to himself as "on sabbatical" while discerning his next step.

• Marlene Lischwe, 64, was semi-retired, still substitute teaching and also volunteering when the program began. She wanted to be on the same page with her husband, Dan, as retirement beckoned him.
