Art & Soul Retreat: Personal and Liturgical Creative Expression
The Art of Growing Our Souls
August 18th – 23rd, 2019
The Art and Soul Retreat is designed to provide opportunities to connect with the Divine through many forms of artistic expression. Within a spiritual community of love and creativity, we strive to renew our minds and inspire our hands and voices in ordinary and extraordinary ways.
Classes are led by some of the finest artisans in their fields. Kits and supplies are provided by instructors at an additional cost. Participants must register for a morning class track, leaving afternoons open to participate in the music program, work on personal projects or enjoy the outdoors.

She is a past chairman of the Alabama Diocesan Commission on Spirituality and has been co-chairman of Kanuga’s Liturgical Arts Conference for the past 10 years.

Her leisure time is filled with creative activities such as needlework, photography, flower arranging, gardening, traveling and pampering their three cocker spaniels. Today Lark continues to find meaning, creative expression and pure joy in being a part of the Liturgical Arts Conference. “It is a personal blessing to be a part of such an event which touches so many lives.
