Upcoming 14 days - Nov 21 2018



This yearly weekend gathers Advent pilgrims who desire to contemplate the season. We do this through three moments of communal reflection, ample quiet time, ritual celebration and Eucharist. Our guide is available for spiritual conversations throughout the weekend.

Slow down and make space in your busy life! In the stillness of your heart, listen to God’s Word. During these three Advent evenings, Sr. Elizabeth will guide the group through reflective reading of scripture, traditionally known as Lectio Divina. In the quiet, you will find peace and space for God’s great gift of love.
