TERESA OF AVILA - A Day of Reflection on Teresa & the Interior Castle with Mary Manrique

Saturday, April 29th from 9:30-4:00 p.m.

“Not all souls are by their nature capable of meditating, but all souls are capable of loving.” -St. Teresa of Avila

Teresa of Avila has a timeless quality to her life & message.  She is so well-known that many people often quote her sometimes wise & sometimes sarcastic sayings.  Her life, one of passionate service holds numerous examples that apply to us today.  An incredible intellect she was also down-to-earth, energetic, funny & loving.  

Her writings on prayer are consolidated in her book: The Interior Castle. We will spend the morning reflecting on her ideas for prayer & spiritual life.

In the afternoon Teresa’s inspiration will lead us in a creative expression. Using collage, mandalas,  papers, & markers we will have fun with glue, color,, & paints – simple techniques to treasure Teresa’s messages in our hearts.

Fifteenth Annual Icon Workshop with Father Richard Cannuli

Monday thru Saturday, June 19th - 24th from 9:30-4:30 pm

During our six-day workshop students will create an icon using ancient techniques and natural materials rich with symbolic meaning: wood panels prepared with gesso, finely ground clay, 23-karat Italian gold leaf, and mineral pigments in an emulsion made from egg yolk.  Previous artistic experience is not required, since icon painting is as much a contemplative form of prayer as an artistic discipline.  Each student will complete an icon under Father Richard's guidance and instruction.  All materials will be provided.

Augustinian Friar Richard: Villanova University’s Art Gallery director, a professor of studio art, a well-known water-colorist, liturgical design consultant, and has designed and constructed hand-sewn religious vestments, furnishings and accessories for churches worldwide.   His 2012 icon exhibit tour of Italy, the Czech Republic and Poland led to a gift of one of his icons to Pope Francis I.
