About the Event
Life can not be without water. From Saint Francis canticle of the creatures, we will do activities around water through all religions. We will create a personal prayer using authentic materials from the 12th and 13th century in the format of an illuminated page. There will be creative ideas on display throughout the weekend. You are welcome to use the material provided and create a piece of prayer art at your own pace.
