Community Programs

Theological education means more than Scripture study. It is relevant in all that we do. Aquinas Institute recognizes this and seeks to engage the Catholic community and the broader Christian community in conversations important to their faith lives and their understanding of Church and theology.

Art and Spirituality Retreat

Fr. Mark Dean, OMI and King's House Staff
June 19-21

All artists—dabblers and beyond—are welcome! Come join us and explore how artistic expressions provide pathways to the soul as well as to the Spirit which undergirds all Creation, including our own hearts. This year in our work with art and spirituality we will explore the practice of Visio Divina as a way of allowing artwork to become a pathway to prayer. Good food and mindful liturgies will sustain us in body and soul during this time of creative reflection upon the relationship between the works of our hands and the work of our hearts. Jesus said we must be as little children to enter the Kingdom of God. Bring your “child-within” and come out to play!
