Women’s Christ Renews Retreat

Christ Renews

Weekend of Renewal For Women

May 2 and 3, 2020

Life has a way of teaching us that all of our commitments, including our commitment to Christ, need continual renewal if we are to be faithful

Registration Deadline is April 13th

Think and pray seriously about this opportunity . . .

… do you need to deepen your faith?

… do you need space for your inner journey?

… is your life out of balance?

… are you out of touch with the action of God in your life?

… are you seeking to enrich your understanding of what it means to be a Christian in today’s world?

… do you see yourself as “church”?  As a disciple of Jesus?

… do you need time to listen anew to Jesus’ call?

What about the cost?

The renewal weekend is a gift from the women putting on the weekend to the women attending the weekend.  Volunteers provide food and service.

Where can I get further information?

You are welcome to call the Coordinator of Adult Formation Programs 835-6777 or speak to any parishioner who has experienced the weekend.

Art Reflection

Art Reflections provides an opportunity to see and discuss the visual arts, to recognize the sacred in the secular. We begin with Visio Divina followed by some casual, some prepared discussions of Art in our lives. Meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6:00-7:30pm in the Lounge.

The imagination works through suggestion, not description. Description is always direct and frequently closes off what it names. Suggestion respects the mystery and richness of a thing. All it offers are clues to its nature. Suggestion keeps the mystery open and extends us the courtesy of inviting us to see the thing for ourselves. It offers us the hospitality and freedom to trust the integrity of our own encounter with a thing. This is how a work of art can allow itself to be seen in so many different and often conflicting ways. It does not foreclose on the adventure of revelation. —John O’Donohue

Gail Fitzpatrick-Hopler offers a wonderful invitation into visio divina (or sacred seeing). I invite you to try this image for a meditation experience, as a window into your own soul and the Divine.
