Advent Day of Relection via ZOOM
The Scriptures of Advent offer us an insider’s view into the faith and faithfulness of Elizabeth & Zechariah and Mary & Joseph. Each one of these four hears God’s word spoken uniquely to them through the angel Gabriel. During our time together we will listen to, reflect on and attend to the intricacies of these invitations from God. We will spend some time in prayer, private reflection and group sharing as we seek guidance from each of these Advent companions.

Centering Prayer Retreat With Mary Dwyer
Advent is a deep time of waiting in darkness that is often forgotten in our consumer-driven times. Come and await with us in this Advent Zoom Retreat as we prepare to welcome new life/light/love. This retreat supports and encourages our Centering Prayer practice. We will have communal times of silent prayer and teaching. We are called to be people of the true LIGHT, but without quiet and patience the true Spirit of the season can pass us by.
Facilitator: Mary Dwyer
Dates: Thursday December 3, 7:00 pm-
Sunday Dec. 6, 11:00 am
Note: Sessions times to be determined.
All sessions will be via ZOOM
