Contemplating Our Blessings Through Collage (on-site)

  • by

April 28 | Thursday 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. CDT

Facilitated by Rev. Mary Donovan
Cost: $75 (includes materials and lunch)

In this workshop we will explore the creative act of collage. We will use our thoughts and materials such as tissue paper, pictures and words from magazines, and old family snapshots to create four pieces focusing on the themes of family, prayer, dreams, and the stresses of life. Through the work of our hands, we hope to awaken a greater realization of the many blessings in our lives.

Please register by April 18. 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, which will be emailed a week prior to the retreat date. We look forward to welcoming you in person.
