It is the beautiful task of Advent to awaken

in all of us memories of goodness and

thus to open doors of hope.

Advent Retreat –

“Prophets, Mystics & Storytellers”

December 3-5                                  $195

with Pastor Matt and Br. Michael

God is the great storyteller; history has proved this and our place in history continues to show how God is still writing the message of Good News for all people.

The Advent Season is filled with great stories and great people from scripture. It also invokes in us our stories and often brings to mind the people who we have journeyed with and those we share the journey with now.
