LETTING GO: A LABYRINTH WALK


MONDAY, OCTOBER 2, 6:30-8:30PM

Fall is a time of shedding, of releasing, and of letting go. An appropriate metaphor for our inner process of growth and transformation. Before we can awaken new possibilities, we must let go of what is no longer necessary for our journey toward wholeness. The labyrinth is a tool that supports our journey. It invites us to shed the old so we can receive guidance for our “what’s next”. It offers an experience of moving toward wholeness. Join us and walk labyrinth, Monday, October 2. Our evening begins with a brief workshop followed by a candlelit labyrinth walk. Contact Carrie Chevalier Mosher at Carrie@cycleofwholeness.com to register.

CAST INTO THE DEEP - ADULT SERIES


CAST INTO THE DEEP


Monday, October 9, 6:30–8:30pm
A new adult faith formation series at Pax Christi Catholic Community


Just as Jesus told Peter to “cast into the deep” of the sea of Galilee (Luke 5:4), he invites us to cast into the deep of the riches of our Catholic faith!

This year, Cast Into The Deep will use Bishop Robert Barron’s DVD series “Catholicism” to explore what Catholics believe and why. Bishop Barron takes us through 50 locations in 16 countries, revealing the beautiful artistic, historical, architectural, musical, and literary treasures that illuminate the timeless teachings of the Church!

Our evening launches at 6:30pm. But if you’re coming from work, or just want some good food, grab a bite on us at 6:00pm and enjoy your meal as our presentation begins. After a 50 minute video presentation, we’ll spend some time at table talking about what impacted us and to seek how Christ desires to transform our lives. Our nite concludes with a time of prayer and fellowship.

Cast Into The Deep is for Catholics who want to be enriched in their faith, as well as non-Catholics who want to learn about Christ and his Church. We will meet on the second Monday each month. Come join us!  CLICK HERE to view informational flyer.

NEW TESTAMENT IMAGES ART EXHIBIT


BY KIRSTEN MALCOLM BERRY
Opening reception Sunday, October 22 following morning Masses

Stop in to see artwork created by Kirsten Malcolm Berry between October 20 and November 9. "I base my art on the images of the New Testament. Integrated into each painting is the verse on which it is based, written in Greek — a link to the original form of the text. The configurations of repeated shapes reflect the influence of several indigenous art forms: Southeast Asian fabrics, Scandinavian woolen tapestries, Native American weaving, traditional quilts, and Byzantine mosaics. The exercise of faith is difficult for those of us who long for perceptible signs of God’s presence. I paint the images of the Bible to help me translate the abstract into the tangible. Through pictures I grasp that the Word indeed became flesh, and in resurrection power is present in the Comforter." Kirsten’s B.A., major in art, is from Bethel University in St. Paul. She completed additional coursework in Drawing, Painting, and Watercolor at the University of Minnesota and the University of Iowa. She has shown her paintings in 65 solo and two-person exhibitions, and a similar number of group sacred art shows. Her work is in private and church collections, and has appeared in religious periodicals, on book covers, and Augsburg Fortress Sunday bulletins.
