I’m really excited that this year we are finally able to get our long-awaited retreat for communications arts professionals off the ground! A wonderful team of Daughters of Saint Paul—Sr. Kathryn Hermes, Sr. Margaret Michael Gillis, Sr. Carmen Christi Pompei—will be leading the retreat with me. Taking a Pauline approach, we will focus on the special gifts and challenges of centering our lives on Christ, while fully engaging in the often-fragmenting world of communication. I will be sharing material from the recent seminar on apostolic mysticism that I participated in in Rome. I hope to see you here!
As communication professionals and media artists, we have a special relationship with truth, beauty, and goodness and we strive to communicate those in a compelling way. But the demanding nature of our work as artists and communicators in today’s hyper, secularized media culture heightens our awareness that the treasure we are called to communicate must flow through us, even though we are flawed clay pots. This Catholic retreat invites us to nurture our contemplation of the Treasure within, and revitalize how we communicate God’s Glory in a compelling way.
If you work in communications or entertainment, “Clay Pots” is the retreat for you.
