Human beings have always been restless for God. We have longed for God, longed for Advent’s dream of peace. This Advent particularly, we long for something new in our world. We long for the peace that can only come from God.

Please join us for this special Advent retreat day. We will explore three familiar stories from Scripture that frame the Advent season and remind us again that God is most often found in the most simple and ordinary moments of daily life.

This Advent Retreat Day will include a retreat conference, time for quiet prayer and reflection, an opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Mass, and lunch.

Presenter: Sister Mary Ann Strain, CP has been working in retreat ministry since 1986. She holds a Master of Arts in Religious Studies from Providence College.  She also works as a graphic artist and designer.
