Hope and Comfort in these Times: An Advent Retreat

December 4 @ 7:00 pm - December 6 @ 11:30 am

$60

This Advent season will be like no other with quarantine restrictions; altered holiday celebrations; inability to be with loved ones; and continued economic and political turmoil. How does the Rule of Benedict help us to find hope, peace and even joy during these times?

Join us for a virtual retreat, including a livestreamed concert of Advent hymns and carols and a Taizé service; workshops on Waiting, Hope and Praying with Mandalas plus opportunities for integration or lectio divina via Zoom; and a Zoom social hour.

This retreat is open to oblates and the public.
