Apr. 26, 2018: Art & Soul

Getting creative is good for the soul! Bring your friends and your favorite bottle of wine to one of our monthly 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.

Inspirational Rocks
with Tony Deal

What is the Lord teaching you this Easter season?  On April 26th, we will make our own inspirational rocks.  Tony Deal will lead the participants in the popular craft project of creating several unique painted rocks with each participant's own message.  Join us as we consider the lessons God is sowing in our lives and create our own message to spread the joy of discovering the Good News!  This project is good for beginner and seasoned artists alike.

Rocks

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. This program runs 7-9pm on the fourth Thursday of the month. Sorry, no observers allowed.

Apr. 28, 2018 Saturday Morning Book Club

Father Elijah

Saturday Morning Book Club

Join us in April as we discuss Father Elijah by Michael D. O'Brien.  The author presents a thrilling apocalyptic novel about the condition of the Roman Catholic Church at the end of time.  It explores the state of the modern world, and the strengths and weaknesses of the contemporary religious scene, by taking his central character, Father Elijah Schafer, a Carmelite priest, on a secret mission for the Vatican which embroils him in a series of crises and subterfuges affecting the ultimate destiny of the Church.

Arrive ready to discuss the book on April 28, 2018. We'll meet in the Administration Building Conference Room, from 9:30am to 11:30am. The San Pedro Center Book Club is led by Fr. Blase Romano, TOR.

If you are unable to get this month's book at your local library, Amazon always has “gently used” copies for sale for a very reasonable price. This book is also available through Formed.org if you have membership through your parish. Please register online or call the San Pedro Office (407) 671-6322. This is a free program but, as always, donations are humbly accepted.

Franciscan Hermitage Retreat

A silent retreat guided by Franciscan Fr. Vianney Cunningham, TOR and
Jeanne & Tony Walter, Members of the Secular Franciscan Order.

San Pedro Center offers opportunities for an experience of Franciscan Hermitage deeply rooted in the Franciscan tradition.

Francis would withdraw to a hermitage or place of solitude in order to be with the Lord. In silence he would spend time praying.

If you would like to experience this rhythm of solitude and quiet, you are invited to attend this retreat. After an orientation and talk on the Franciscan way of life on Thursday evening, the retreatant begins two and a half days of silence. Each day begins with Eucharist. The Divine Office is recited communally throughout the day and evening, and personal time with the Lord is spent in rest, personal prayer and enjoyment of the grounds & chapel.

This retreat is limited to eight retreatants and fills up quickly.

The retreat begins at 6:00pm Thursday evening and concludes with 10:00am Mass on Sunday. Please eat dinner prior to arriving Thursday evening.
