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 and reflective experiences that usually include a creative process.  Engaging and inviting others into a safe place to do their personal and spiritual work is what I believe Spirit has gifted and called me to do. Creative expression is a threshold for entering our inner sacred space and invites us to touch the HOLY within.

I have facilitate a women’s group called the “Soul Circle” (2009-present), companioned novices for the OFM friars interprovincial formation program, lead one day retreats for local Catholic, Lutheran and Methodist faith communities,
presented  spirituality sessions for Deacon Wives Conference in the Dioceses of New Orleans and Milwaukee and facilitate virtual series for Sinsinawa Mound Center.

As a Boundless Compassion Facilitator, I recently co-directed a Boundless Compassion and Franciscan values week-long retreat.
