Corpus Christi Generations of Faith, Detroit
Advent Retreat:
Don’t Sit Still! ~ Pray in Movement and Song!


There are many ways to pray.  Just as we have been created body, mind and spirit

we can pray with our whole being as well!  As we begin to get caught up in the

busyness of the holidays, it is good to stop for awhile and reflect on the Advent

season we are preparing to celebrate.  Take some time to join with your Corpus

Christi community, nourish your Spirit and enhance your prayer life.  Come

experience a new dimension in your personal prayer using your body, mind and

spirit to pray with the Scriptures and music of the season.  Basic movements will

be taught which can be done by anyone, regardless of experience or physical

limitation. All are invited to reflect, relax, and be refreshed as we prepare for

Christ’s coming!


St. Mary on the Lake, Manitou Beach
Intergenerational Formation ~ Returning to God

During this Lenten season, God invites us to return to Him.  Even when we haven’t

wandered very far, even when we don’t realize we’ve strayed, we can always come

closer.  That’s what Lent is all about.  Prayer is a way we develop our relationship

with God and there are many ways to pray.  Come experience prayer that engages

your whole self – body, mind and spirit.   Using Scripture, music and movement,

we will learn how to activate our prayer.
