Sr. Stella DeVenuta, OSF, I am a Sister of St. Francis of Assisi, St. Francis,Wisconsin.
As an artist and a trained spiritual director-companion. I offer retreat & reflective experiences that invite others into a safe place to attend to personal and spiritual work. At times, creative expression (ie poetry, color, sound, journaling) provides a threshold for entering inner sacred space. This tangible expression is not about "making" art but an invitation to touch the HOLY within.
At SanctuStar Oasis, I host a monthly spirituality group called the “Soul Circle” (2009-Present).
Additionally my ministry has included:
Companioning OFM Friar novices interprovincial formation program
One day retreats for various Catholic, Lutheran and Methodist faith communities
Spirituality Day of Reflection for a Deacon Wives Conference in the Diocese of New Orleans and Milwaukee.
Labyrinth and virtual programs for Sinsinawa Mound Center
As a Certified Boundless Compassion Facilitator, co-designed and presented a "Boundless Compassion and Franciscan values" Retreat.
