Praying with Imagination 2014
Igniting an Artful Response 

Sunday July 13 (4 p.m.) –

Friday, July 18 (breakfast)

Saint John’s Abbey Guesthouse, Collegeville, MN

This ecumenical retreat invites pastoral leaders and catechists to pray with the Illuminated Word of The Saint John’s Bible and to extend that prayer through the arts of bookmaking, such as calligraphy, painting, and storytelling. The retreat’s morning sessions empower participants to practice the Seeing the Word process, delve deeper into learning the rhythm of visio divina and facilitate the practice with others. The afternoon will invite participants to ground their own spirituality through developing their artistic imagination.
