Art & Soul: January 25, 2018

Marker Painted Coasters
with Tony Deal

Getting creative is good for the soul! Bring your friends and your favorite bottle of wine to one of our two-hour classes, and enjoy step-by-step instruction with our enthusiastic and experienced local artists. Each month, a local artist will guide you in making a one of a kind creation, all while focusing on a particular aspect of our Catholic faith. The artwork and crafts change each month, from DIY projects to charcoal, acrylic and watercolor! Our artists will guide you through the process and offer a faith reflection or challenge each month.

On January 25, join artist Tony Deal as he guides you through the process of creating marker painted coasters, each inspired by the virtues! In which virtue would you like to grow during 2018--Peace, Hope, Love or Faith? This project is good for beginner and seasoned artists alike!

This is a family friendly night! Bring your I.D. with your wine of choice, and we'll provide the glasses. You must be at least 21 to consume alcohol (beer or wine only) in the studio. Participants under the age of 21 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Sorry, no observers allowed.

Praying in Color
Drawing a new path to God
with Fr. Blase, T.O.R.

Do you have a short attention span while praying? Are you easily distracted when you pray? Maybe you love color. Maybe you want to know God better. Maybe you need to get prayer "out of your head" and on to paper. With just some blank paper and a few colored pencils, we can move closer to God in this interesting way to pray. We will use our time together to explore praying in color, but you don't have to an artist or good at drawing! Come with the willingness to open yourself to the creative elements in your heart and use them in prayer. Supplies will be provided. Join Fr. Blase Romano, T.O.R. and see how you can add a new dimension to your prayer life!

Coffee and danishes are served at 9:00 am. The program begins at 9:30 am followed by lunch. Mass ends the day!

Feb. 23-25, 2018: Lenten Retreat

Pope_Francis_in_Prato_(87)

A Weekend Lenten Retreat with Fr. Vianney, TOR.

Our annual Lenten Retreat will draw you closer to God in this Lenten season. This year, we will draw from the homilies, public addresses, and other writings of Pope Francis. These will help us through the days of lent as we journey towards the Resurrection of the Lord.

Pope Francis has much to teach us about prayer, fasting, and almsgiving during this sacred time. He reminds us that the days of lent are a time to reflect on how good God has been to us. After all, where would we be if we did not have a spiritual journey to travel?

Pope Francis reminds us that the days of lent are a time to reflect on how good God has been to us. Lent is a time to start breathing again and to open our hearts to the breath of the One, he says, who is able to turn our dust to humanity.

This retreat will be part of our journey of hope which leads to the joy of the Resurrection. It will be a time of remembering and a time to reflect and to ask ourselves where we would be had God not favored us. It will be a time of mercy where we can begin anew by opening our hearts to what is new as we move forward.

Check in begins at 4:00pm in the Administration Building. The retreat begins with dinner at 5:30pm on Friday and conclude on Sunday after the 10:00am Sunday Mass. Talks will be followed by sharing with others on retreat and by periods of silence.

In addition to Eucharist, Saturday and Sunday, there will be an opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

Lectio Divina
Gospel Contemplation
Visio Divina
We will speak of the ways to pray with each of these and demonstrate how to do each one.
