Back by popular demand, this Saturday morning experience will be a semi-self-directed Lenten retreat involving the participant’s reflection on a single piece of art. The retreat leader will prepare participants for choosing a piece of art for personal reflection. The art work one settles on can speak to us spiritually without having a conventional religious subject. It can be an icon that serves as a window into God. (Lunch available in the cafeteria)

Are you drawn to the contemplative life; an awareness that allows the Spirit to take root in the heart and transform it? Or seeking some connection between Silence that is at the center of all things and the busyness of the life you are living? Let’s explore the call to a contemplative way of life and how to nurture this call in all the daily demands and obligations of our lives. Our day will include sessions of silent prayer and for discussion. Please bring a journal/notebook.
