Advent Mini-Retreat Dec. 1

You know how easy it is to get swept up in the busyness of December, so why not schedule an Advent mini-retreat now? Patricia Fazzone, a teacher of sacred story, will be our retreat leader on Saturday, Dec. 1, 2012, from 1-3:30 p.m. “Luke’s gospel story of the Visitation depicts a joyous meeting of Mary and Elizabeth during a three month sojourn before the birth of their first born children. The story of their meeting becomes enriched when we imagine the presence of Joseph and Zechariah and enter into the fullness of a home centered in the Jewish traditions of prayer, sacred story, and lived faith experience. Each couple shares gifts that can speak to us during our Advent journey, especially the gifts of trust, expectant waiting, and hospitable presence. Through a weaving of artistic and poetic expression, sacred story and holy imagining, we too can share the gifts given from our pondering of this beautiful story as we journey through the days of Advent to Christmas.” Please RSVP. Sign up sheets are on the orange bulletin board in the parish hall.
