The natural world is a consistent source of generosity in our lives. St. Francis, patron saint of ecology, expressed his love for God and nature through The Canticle of the Sun in which he sang praise and thanksgiving for Brother Sun, Sister Moon, and the stars of heaven. Please join us as we honor St. Francis by creating a colorful Brother Sun collage. Using an assortment of hand-painted paper, music sheets, and poetry/words, we will embark on a creative, spontaneous pilgrimage. No experience is necessary, as you’ll be guided through the steps by instructor Mary Thompson.

The day will consist of a Zoom videoconferencing gathering at 9 a.m. for reflection, introduction, and instruction time as well as periodic Zoom check-ins throughout the day, and then a Zoom closing session at 1:30 p.m.

Supplies needed:
Glue (recommended Liquitex Matte Medium, 8 ounces)
Paper (music sheets, magazines, scrapbook paper)
Canvas or wooden board (8-by-10 or 10-by-10)
Acrylic paints
Paintbrushes (one sturdy one for painting, one old one for glue application)

Cost is $50 if supplies are needed (curbside pickup) or $40 if you have your own supplies
