Wednesday, March 22, 7-9pm

Aquinas High School, 2772 Sterling Ave, San Bernardino, CA 92404

Jesus famously says in the Gospel of Matthew, “You must love God with all your heart, and soul, and mind”. How do we understand the “heart”, “soul”, and “mind” both individually and in relation to each other, and what role does each play in understanding and following the will of God? This class will examine the relationship between “knowing God” and “loving God” by comparing the classic arguments of St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas.  Free

The search for purpose, meaning, healing and love keeps us restless and unsatisfied. We seem to be walking in circles, repeating old patterns and unable to break the anxious mental loop of “what ifs”! Walking a Labyrinth as a meditative practice quiets the busyness of our thoughts and anxieties and graces the walker with clarity and peace. The grace of a Labyrinth walk is immediate and transformative by nature. We will use a variety of media, music and art to create a grace filled day complete with 2 Labyrinth walks. Dress comfortably and wear your walking shoes. Lunch included.

Cost: $50

24.       Iconography Ministry at St. Kateri Tekakwitha Parish in Santa Clarita:  Annual Iconography Workshop, Monday, August 14, through Friday, August 18, in Mission Hills

The San Fernando Pastoral Region Center in Mission Hills is hosting the seventh annual Iconography Workshop from Monday, August 14, through Friday, August 18, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day.  Under the leadership of master iconographer Nicholas Markell, students will write an icon of St. Junipero Serra, the recently-canonized founder of the first nine California missions and “Apostle of California.”  Classes will provide students with a creative and hands-on experience in a reflective and communal atmosphere of studio time, prayer, and instruction.  Master iconographer Markell teaches Eastern iconography from a Western Catholic perspective in an approach that explores the ancient art technique, the spiritual symbolism of the icon writing process, the history and theological significance of the icon, the living tradition of iconography, and the vocation of the iconographer.  Guidance is given in all phases of the icon writing process, including preparation of the icon board, transfer and etching of the icon image, application of clay bole and gold leaf, writing the image in stages using egg tempera and dry pigments, and fixing the image with oil.  Cost of the workshop is $550 and includes all materials, instruction, lunches, and tours of the San Fernando Mission and the Archival Center.  Proceeds support iconography ministry and renewal in the life of the Church.  Reservations are now being accepted with a $150 materials fee.  For more information or reservations, please contact Mr. Kevin Kipper at (661) 645-1431 or at:
