Advent Retreat Day
December 6 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm$50
What do you want for Christmas?
Every child of every age can readily answer that question. Regardless of age, there is a desire for a gift that will bring happiness. For little children, it is happiness in the moment. For the rest of us, it is a sense of well-being that affects the quality of our life beyond today.
The scripture readings during the season of Advent answer that question best summed up in 2Peter3:13-14:
“In accordance with God’s promise, we wait for new heavens and a new earth where righteousness is at home.”
Our Advent retreat day will offer sacred time to ponder the possibilities of what new heavens and new earth can mean in our world today and how we are called to bring it about. Our day will include a retreat conference, an opportunity to go to Confession, Mass, and lunch.
