The ecumenical committee at St. Gerard's in Yorkton held their Fall Art Retreat in November.  A good turn-out of artists in a variety of art forms from painting to embroidery to photography were on hand for the day as we explored the theme of "healing". Part of our group exercises included a "spiritual" visit to the Camino de Santiago, where we all left our pebbles of worries at the Iron Cross, as well as writing down our cares and worries on paper and burning them as a form of cleansing. Later, we made a group mandala, writing down specific prayer intentions.  The day also consisted of readings and brief meditations as well as productive artistic time to work on our projects.  It was a wonderful, peaceful, spiritual day.
