Advent Retreat

A Four-Week Retreat in Everyday Life

Advent 1.jpg

"they set out; and there, ahead of them, went the star that they had seen at its rising, until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw that the star had stopped, they were overwhelmed with joy."  (Matthew 2:9-10)

This Advent Season, as we journey together in hopeful expectation, join us for this wonderful opportunity to open our hearts to receive the love and joy that God desires to give to us. This retreat is adapted from the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola, and invites us into a deeper, experiential knowing of God's love for us, intimate presence, and desire to enter more fully into our lives. 


Throughout this four-week retreat, we will pray daily, and then gather once a week for a time of prayerful reflection and sacred sharing of our experiences. Space is limited for this retreat. If you are interested in making this retreat, please register soon. Attend in person or virtually. All are welcome!
