Surrender All To Love

Surrender All To Love

Informational Video

Join artist Jen Norton for an art project and Lenten reflection on Jesus’ extravagant display of transforming love and mercy.

Using Jen’s book, Surrender All (Ave Maria Press) as a starting point, Jen and Mary Dillard, Director of Mercy Center Burlingame, will guide our walk together as we meditate on the Stations of the Cross. Then, Jen will guide you in creating a unique piece of expressive art that examines your own heart, finding clues to your mission call.

The workshop includes 6 “on-demand” pre-recorded sessions. You can access and view the pre-recorded art classes and reflections at any time. Small groups will also be offered at various times throughout Lent so that we can share our experiences of the journey. 

Pre-Recorded Video Workshops – On-Demand (You choose when to view.)

SESSION ONE: Jesus is Condemned/Jesus carries His cross

SESSION TWO: The 3 Falls

SESSION THREE: Meeting Mary and the Women of Jerusalem

SESSION FOUR: Response of Simon and Veronica


SESSION SIX: Transformation and Resurrection
