Catechists are always seeking spiritual enrichment. Here is an opportunity that I encourage you to take advantage of if writing is a part of your spiritual experience.
Write for the good of your soul! Days of Deepening Friendship, a blog hosted by Loyola Press author and editor Vinita Hampton Wright, is offering a free online writing retreat September 30–October 4, 2013. Vinita will provide daily material, writing exercises, and short prayers to help you nurture your spiritual life through writing.
You don’t have to be a professional or accomplished writer to use writing for spiritual development. Writing can help you tap your honest feelings, questions, and convictions. It can assist you in paying attention to life’s details. Writing can also free you to say or describe what you’re not even sure you understand yet.
The retreat will be held on Vinita’s blog, Days of Deepening Friendship, so there is no need to sign up in advance.
What a good idea. I am glad you promoted it, Joe. I forwarded it to my program catechists.
I’m pretty excited about this. How should I get this started.
Pls contact me through my email.
Elaine, just follow the link to Vinita’s Web site and all the action will take place there!
I am so looking forward in tapping into my spiritual soul. I believe this will help me be a better catechist for the students who look up to me. This could be a good exercise to promote my high grade level students. Perhaps this will be GREAT for them. Thank you Joe.
