Join us at Our Lady Queen of the World Parish in Richmond Hill for a two-evening meditation on the ways God communicates to us through beauty. The first evening explores the ways that we have used images in prayer to help us draw closer to the sacred. We pray with these powerful images using visio divina which is a way of praying with art. We further consider how we can pray with art in our daily lives.

The second evening explores the visual language of the parish church. We consider the architecture, stained glass, statues and other sacred images around us. How is God reaching out to us through the beauty of our sacred environment?

While the two evenings are being hosted by Our Lady Queen of the World, it is also sponsored by the St. Monica Institute, the new lay formation initiative of the Archdiocese of Toronto. Surrounded by Grace is intended for catechists and teachers who want to add to their repertoire of teaching techniques. They would also be for anyone who is seeking a new (yet old) form of prayer to enrich their spiritual lives. These sessions are particularly useful for parishes looking for ways to revitalize congregations after the challenges of the last three years.
