There are two opportunities for retreats that I wanted to share with you.
The first is from my own sisters: The Daughters of St. Paul.
This year, the Daughters of St. Paul are celebrating 100 years since our foundation. So, my sisters decided to hold a retreat to share the beauty of our Pauline charism with communication professionals and media artists:
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.
A weekend to satisfy the thirst of your spirit with opportunities for rest, silence, spiritual conversation, conferences, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and Eucharistic prayer (Mass and adoration).
A Catholic retreat specifically geared to those working in the field of communication arts and offered by a community of sisters who themselves are media professionals
People of all faith traditions are welcomed.
The cost for the retreat is $200.00. A student rate of $155.00 is available with student ID. Registration fee includes accommodations for 2 nights, meals, retreat guides and spiritual directors.For more information, please visit pauline.org/retreat.
There is also a Catholic Writer’s Guild retreat happening at the end of October (25-29) in DeWitt, Michigan. I know some Patheos bloggers plan to be there so if you are a writer looking for some down time with Jesus, this is the retreat for you.
