A Film Event:  “Come Walk with Me” ~ Phil’s Camino       
Annie O’Neil, Director/Producer

Saturday, March 4, 2:00 to 5:00pm

Award-winning, short documentary, Phil’s Camino, tells the story of free spirit Phil, a man living with Stage 4 cancer and dreaming of walking the 500 mile spiritual pilgrimage, Camino de Santiago, across Spain. Unable to make the trip, he does the next best thing: he builds a camino in the forest behind his house, starts to walk, and traces his progress on a map. Along the way he realizes his true pilgrimage is the one he travels within. Phil's journey is one of hope, acceptance & freedom. The event will begin with an introduction by Annie O’Neil to her incredible documentary followed by a discussion of the film and Spanish Tapas for refreshments to bring the flavors of the Camino to Mary & Joseph. Cost:$30 ($25 if paid in full by February 24)

The Labyrinth: Finding Grace by Walking in Circles
Sue Ballotti, MA

Saturday, March 25, 9:00am to 3:00pm

The search for purpose, meaning, healing and love keeps us restless and unsatisfied. We seem to be walking in circles, repeating old patterns and unable to break the anxious mental loop of “what ifs”! Walking a Labyrinth as a meditative practice quiets the busyness of our thoughts and anxieties and graces the walker with clarity and peace. The grace of a Labyrinth walk is immediate and transformative by nature. We will use a variety of media, music and art to create a grace filled day complete with 2 Labyrinth walks. Dress comfortably and wear your walking shoes. Lunch included.
Cost: $50 ($45 if paid in full by March 17)
