Iconography Workshop


Join Abbot James, OSB, Br. Benedict Geist, OSB, and Iconographer, Elizabeth Zeller, OFS, July 27-29, 2015, for an Iconography Workshop 

Participants will paint a small icon in the traditional way as the monks did 1400 years ago.  We are using egg yolk, pigments and 24 carat gold leaf, on a wooden panel. Abbot James will bless the newly painted icons at the end of the retreat during the Holy Mass. Participants are invited to join the daily prayer life with the monks.  Abbot James Albers, OSB will speak about Consecrated Life.

Certificate of Attendence included.

Location: St Benedict's Abbey, Atchison KS.

$175 workshop fee includes all materials, room in the guest house, and all meals with the monks. We recognize this fee as a very special and generous offer by Abbot James and the monks and are tremendously thankful for it.
