Drawn into Friendship: An Interactive Art Retreat

by | May 27, 2020 | Spirituality, Videos

Join us for an interactive art retreat based on the creation story found in Genesis. Christopher Alt, S.J., and his brother Jesuits will guide you through a series of scripture passages, drawing exercises, and meditations. The retreat, approximately an hour long, can be viewed in one sitting or broken up according to each respective “day of creation.” Whatever you decide, download the “Creation Sketchbook” below, grab some paper, colored and charcoal pencils, and/or crayons and join us as we pray with and reflect on the sacred story of how we came to be, who we are, and whose we are. 

To learn more about this retreat, read Christopher’s reflection, Creating Together: Jesuits Invite You to an Interactive Art Retreat.
