St. Joseph Retreat Center


Come join us in person for a day of reflection and integration. This will be an opportunity to explore and to befriend what Psalm 139 names our inmost being.

 Saturday, May 13, 2023  > 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

(a simple soup lunch will be served)

In the morning, we will create a mandala using simple collage materials.  This is an opportunity to explore our own Inner and Outer Selves.   In the process, perhaps we will identify that which is desiring integration and wholeness.

In the afternoon, we will share an experience with fiber art using fabric, ribbon, yarn, and other embellishments.  Here we will explore, and might ultimately, come to know ourselves as God has known us after all.

*No previous art experience is necessary.  These art as prayer experiences are about entering into a process of creative expression for self-discovery.

COST: $50.00 for the day of reflection

Optional overnight lodging at St. Joseph Retreat Center, Wheeling, WV, is available for an additional $50.00 a night, if interested.
