Prayer Bead Pilgrimage – A One-Day Retreat, Saturday, March 25, 2023

I will be facilitating a Prayer Bead Pilgrimage – A One-Day Retreat with Greg Kennedy Saturday, March 25, 2023 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Ignatius Jesuit Centre, 5420 Highway 6 North, Guelph, Ontario. 

Generations before us have appreciated the comfort of holding prayer beads in their hands.

Join us in a new and modern approach to this old tradition. You will begin this daylong journey by stringing your own Chaplet of Renewal, created by local artist Kristin McCarthy, using colourful glass beads and a handmade woolen medallion. Your hands will hold a newly made-by-you chaplet that asks you to discern your gifts, your sorrows and God’s forgiveness and mercy. With the same bead strand you will then meditate the Chaplet of Renewal of Our Common Home reflecting on your relationship with the natural world. You will explore and appreciate the nature around you and reflect on ways you can be a good servant to the Creator’s love alive in Creation.

The day will include silent time for reflection, a guided walk on the beautiful land of Ignatius Jesuit Centre, and a chance to share with others your experience.

All materials included. All are welcome. For those unable to string their own chaplet, one will be provided. Snacks, coffee and tea provided.

Please bring with you: your own lunch, reading glasses if needed, a journal to write in.

The cost is $75.00.
