Clay and Fire (on-site)

May 17-19, 2024 | Friday, 7:00 p.m.—Sunday, 2:00 p.m., CDT

facilitated by Sr. Alberta Hermann
Cost: $280 ($50 non-refundable deposit to secure your seat, includes room, meals, and supplies)
Registration is limited to 8

After taking some time to listen to God’s voice in creation, we will carry the theme of nature with us into the art studio and into our clay work. Our time will be spent opening ourselves to the reality of God’s presence with us in everyday life, through nature and the work of our hands. You will return home with your finished clay pieces as a remembrance of this special time and with a deepened awareness of God’s closeness to you. No artistic ability or experience in working with clay is needed—all are welcome!

You are encouraged to register early as space is limited. Please register no later than May 3. Once we have received your registration, we will send you an invoice for the retreat. Please know we have scholarships available; if you would like to make a request, email S. Carol Ann at We strongly encourage you to add to your email contacts to ensure the delivery of emails regarding your retreat.

Sr. Alberta has engaged in various ministries: teacher, occupational therapist, maintenance director, formation director, and director of housekeeping. For fun, she works with clay and enjoys baking.
