Adult workshop (ages 13 and up)

A chance to share and learn about ourselves, other, our faith – and how we are connected.  Join us for this participatory workshop on transforming memories – of our families, histories, recipes and adventures – into stories. Through group, partner and individual activities, we will learn to be storytellers and story listeners.  For those who wish to share, we’ll close with a round-up of stories from the group, with Marilyn as emcee.
