Paint (or “write”) your own icon with step-by-step group and individual instruction. Spend the retreat week creating your own and reflecting on the icon of Our Lady of the Sign. You are invited to go deeper into the symbolism of this 4th century image of the praying Church, as Christ-bearers in the world. The image is know as the Platytera in Greek, meaning “’More Spacious than the Heavens’ is the one who bears Christ.”
Drazen Dupor will present some of the history of iconography and lead us through the process of creating our own icon.
Pat Shutts will facilitate morning and evening prayer and reflection times.
