The Gift of Reconciliation


Workshop Session A

10: 15 - 11:30 am

Praying with Body, Mind & Spirit - Prayer for Children & Youth


Children and youth of all ages reap benefits from engaging their whole selves in prayer.  Increased focus, deeper understanding of concepts, as well as encounters with God, can result from embodied prayer.  Traditional prayers such as the Hail Mary and Our Father, as well as Scripture verses and key Christian concepts will be experienced through movement and music prayer.   Participants who minister to students from pre-school through high school will gain resources for utilizing movement prayer with these age groups.


Workshop Session B

1:45 - 3:00 pm

Praying with Body, Mind & Spirit - Renewed in Christ


It is our connection with Christ, whether through the Sacarament of Reconciliation or personal prayer, that keeps renewing us for the challenges of daily life. Yet often prayer is the first thing to go when we get busy.  Whether you are in need of refreshment yourself or are seeking ideas for working with the adults of your parish, come and refresh body and soul with this holistic approach to personal prayer.  Deepen your experience of God by using Scripture, movement, music, and guided meditation to pray.  Basic movements will be taught which can be done by anyone, regardless of experience or physical limitation.  All are invited to relax, reflect and be renewed!


Also visit the Prayer in Motion exhibit located in the gymnasium. 


Cost is $40 which includes lunch and admittance to all talks and workshops. 


West Catholic High School is located at 1801 Bristol NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49504.
