On June 5, Faith Lacek would have turned 7. Her parents, Susan and Mark Lacek, marked the occasion by opening the doors to a brand-new lodge on 80 pristine acres of nothern Wisconsin woods complete with a private lake, a large deck, and a giant playroom.
WEBSTER – After completing the fast-tracked construction of Faith’s Lodge, local contractors were thanked for their work Sunday at a special on-site open house.
The unique nonprofit retreat near webster is the brainchild of Mark and Susan Lacek, who lost their first child, Faith Ann, at birth on June 5, 2000. The Minneapolis couple used their new foundation to create a retreat for grieving parents and those with a seriously ill child.
Representatives from the Ronald McDonald House, the Lacek Foundation, and the local community took place in the Friday groundbreaking ceremony for Faith’s Lodge, a retreat center for families in crisis.
