Retreat Invitation to Artists, Writers & Communicators

ChristLivesinMeAs Catholic communicators, you have the awesome call to communicate the beauty of the Gospel. It’s a demanding call: you are busy, with too much to do, too little resources, and your creativity stretched to its limits.

When is the last time you could “tune out” the noise and “tune in” to God?

Save the dates for this retreat especially designed for your needs as a Catholic artist!

Saturday, Oct. 8—Sunday, Oct. 9, 2016

The Daughters of Saint Paul (aka #MediaNuns), a congregation of women religious dedicated to living and communicating Christ through the media, are offering a special retreat for those who breathe, live, and work in our media- saturated world: writers, graphic designers, artists, marketers, actors, musicians, producers, editors, etc.
Clay Pots: Finding the Treasure, Communicating the Glory invites us to nurture our contemplation of the Treasure within our flawed clay pots, and revitalize how we communicate God’s Glory in a compelling way.

WHERE: St. Thecla’s Retreat House, Billerica, MA

WHEN: 8:00 AM Sat., Oct. 8th – 12:00 PM on Sun., Oct. 9th

A weekend retreat to refresh the artist’s soul, with opportunities for Eucharistic prayer (Mass and adoration), the Sacrament of Reconciliation, silence, spiritual conversation, and conferences on spirituality specifically directed towards artists and media professionals. Conference themes include:

  • Waiting at the Well: An Encounter with the Living God offered by national vocation director, speaker and retreat leader, Sr. Margaret Michael, FSP
  • That Christ May Live in Me offered by director of novices, Sr. Carmen Christi Pompei, FSP
  • Jesus at the Every Day Well offered by author, spiritual director, and manager of Pauline Digital, Sr.Kathryn Hermes, FSP
  • Can Holiness Be Digital? Encountering the Beauty of Christ in Our Communications Culture offeredby author and blogger, Sr. Marie Paul Curley, FSP

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!
