Pilgrim: A creative workshop of hand stitching and reflective prayer: Cancelled

Saturday 21 May 2022
10am to 4pm at Sacrista Prebend Retreat House

This event has been cancelled.

Hands stitching fabricUsing the analogy of God’s people as pilgrims, we will use the hymn “Guide me, O thou great Redeemer” to explore the theme of our Christian life as a journey. We will reference the story of the Israelites travelling to the Promised Land and look at the relevance of their journey to our own.

We will prayerfully consider the theme of own pilgrim journeys, and participants will be supported to engage in prayerful hand stitching, using a variety of fabrics, buttons, beads and embellishments whilst reflecting on God our guide.

All materials will be provided.
