Everyone in her lifetime will be a caregiver, need a caregiver or know a caregiver. It is a position we seldom prepare for physically, financially, emotionally or spiritually. This presentation identifies and acknowledges the complexities and challenges of care giving. Using the scriptural model for giving and receiving care we explore the deeper spiritual aspects of care giving thus gaining valuable insight to understand, strengthen and protect us. The presentation will help you approach care giving with new awareness and sensitivity, equip you with new resources, and help you find strength and techniques for coping.
This presentation is divided into two segments. Part 1: Touching the Holy and Part 2: May I Walk You Home?…Courage, Comfort and Coping for Caregivers.
Art of The New Convent: Pastel Art Retreat An “Internal Pilgrimage” Into True Self and God who Dwells Within
In this Pastel Art retreat, participants will learn how to create “personal art” that has rich layers of meaning by using a hands-on application of a unique art technique. They will be taught how to use a non-directive method of interpreting the image that emerges on paper in a way that accesses the spiritual world and ultimately deepens their relationship with God.
Cathechist Formation Program-Eastern Christian Spirituality- What Shall We Teach Them? How Do We Worship?
The second course (12 hours), entitled “How Do We Worship?” covers the topics of Liturgical prayer, private prayer, the Liturgical Year, Liturgical space and time and the Mysteries (Sacraments). Participants are asked to bring their catechisms to this class as indicated in course 1. The course will help students to see the connection between their lives as Catholics and a God who uses history as a form of communication, who becomes incarnate, and who forms a sacramental community of faith.
The camp seeks to pass on aspects of both Ukrainian spirituality and cultural tradition. The theme is based on the Ten Commandments which show us how to apply love in every aspect of life.
Jesus summarized all of God’s laws in two great commandments. ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like the first: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets. (Matthew 22:37-40)
The camp includes catechesis, songs, crafts, Drama Club,embroidery and fun. Space is limited to 25 children.
Reserve your place today! Participation at the camp by registration ONLY!
