Advent Retreat, December 11, 2021
Advent is a time of waiting and preparation.A time to ready our hearts to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
Far too often it becomes a time of busyness and stress as we engage in the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping, decorating, and travel. Instead of rushing towards Christmas, we should wait patiently with anticipation.
One of the best ways to enter into the season of Advent is by prayer/retreat. We invite you to live the retreat with us (December 11, 2021):
