Reclaiming Advent: A Story of Holy Desire

Reclaiming Advent: A Story of Holy Desire The Season of Advent often becomes lost on us as Christians in the flurry of the holidays and all that demands our attention each December.
Join us at the Dignity Center for a day of retreat and reflection on December 9th from 10 am to 4 pm, an opportunity to reclaim Advent as the gift for which it is intended.

Through prayer, meditation and writing, participants will explore the connection between desire as holy and the unique ways in which the Advent experience can nourish and deepen our celebration of
Christmas. Dialogue and other spiritual exercises will creatively enhance the themes considered during the program. Please bring a journal for use throughout the day.
