October 16, 2019, Adrian, Michigan – Set aside time to know yourself more deeply as “God’s work of art” through a day of embodied prayer, using clay, color, music, and movement. “Honoring the Sacrament of Our Life: A Day of Prayerful Art” is held at Weber Retreat and Conference Center from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Saturday, November 16, 2019.
Adrian Dominican Associates Judi Engel and Trudy McSorley walk participants through the day, honoring the gift of sharing in God’s creative energy as co-creators of the Word.
Judi has taught art at the pre-school to graduate school levels and has worked with inner-city communities and refugees. She continues to work in drawing, mixed media, and watercolors. Judi’s focus has been the juncture of the arts, spirituality, and social justice.
Trudy, formerly on the faculty at Siena Heights University, is committed to the Dominican spirituality and, through her own prayer and contemplation, seeks to be a listener and supporter who encourages people on their journey to the Holy.
