Heralds of Advent: An Advent Day of Reflection

This retreat has been cancelled.

During our time together we will prayerfully reflect on the visits by heavenly messengers that came to Mary, Joseph and the shepherds in the fields of Bethlehem. They are an essential part of the Advent and Christmas accounts and they will guide us as we ponder how we too can be heralds of God’s grace and mercy to others.

The opportunity to express your creative response using acrylic paints will be included.  No prior art experience is required.

Saturday, December 15, 2018
The day begins at 9:00am and concludes at 3:00pm.
Cost of $45 includes $10 non-refundable deposit, supplies, and noon meal.
