Contemplative Art Retreat (July 22 - 30)

Event Date: 
July 22, 2013 - 3:00pm

Sister Virginia Varley and Sister Grace Sauvé will be hosting a contemplative art retreat.

Often, words are inadequate in our attempt to express what is deep within our hearts, even to ourselves. This retreat is designed to enable each retreatant to discover the soul's language in art. The retreat offers a way of praying that leads to a deep intimacy with God, using art as a language of prayer. This time offers individuals the opportunity to pray with art in a contemplative setting with guidance.

There will be two of these retreats with the first held from June 10 - 15 and the second held from July 22 - 30. The retreat begins at 3 p.m. on the first day and ends after lunch on the last day.

Cost: $450. A deposit of $50 is needed to register. All art supplies are included.
Registration: Please contact Sister Virginia Varley at 416-929-4799 or at by May 15, 2013.
