DAY OF REFLECTION: April 29, 2017    Green Saints

Brother Mickey McGrath, an Oblate of St. Francis de Sales, is a popular and engaging presenter who travels to conferences, parishes, and retreat centers throughout North America to deliver the good news about deep and often whimsical connections between art and religious faith. He is the author and illustrator of eleven books, many of which have received awards from Catholic publishing associations. The CTK Spiritual Life Committee has invited Brother Mickey to offer a Day of Reflection on “Praying with the Green Saints….Art and Stories in the Spirit of Laudato Si (On Care for Our Common Home.)” Join us as Br. Mickey leads us, through his artwork and the work of modern figures such as Pope Francis and that of saints from the past, to discover our connectedness as one human family, unified in our diversity.
