Advent Retreat in Daily Living: We Wait in Joyful Hope

Mondays Nov. 26 and Dec. 3, 10 and 17 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Unversity of St. Thomas School of Law, Room 242

1000 Lasalle Ave. Minneapolis, MN

Advent is an important time for Christians. It is a time of preparation. Even though we approach the end of the fall semester (and exams) it is important that we take some time to enter into this wonderful season.

This retreat is designed to prepare ourselves to welcome the Christ child into our hearts and homes. We will do so by praying with some of the great prophets and considering the long Advent that preceded the birth of Christ. We will also reflect on the role and preparation of Mary and Joseph in the coming of Christ. We will gather weekly for some sharing on the fruits of our prayer during the week (material for daily prayer will be provided) and a talk on the week’s prayer theme.

As lunch will be served, please RSVP to Bethany Fletcher at moel1755@stthomas.edu. If you know that you will not be able to attend all four sessions, please let Bethany know when you RSVP which sessions you will be attending. (It really helps us to be able to get an accurate lunch count.)

As all of our retreat programs, this program is sponsored by the Holloran Center.
