Advent Prayer Retreat Day

Monsignor Bernard Powers had a simple message to share with the 28 people who participated in the Advent Prayer Retreat Day on Dec. 8 – “God is coming.”

Gathered in Conference Room A in the Mount Saint Joseph Conference and Retreat Center on a crisp and sunny morning, Monsignor Powers passed out sheets of paper and asked each participant to answer the questions with the first word that came to them. The questions were “What do you want?” “What are you doing to get it?” “What do you need?” and “What are you doing to get it?”

“The answer to the first two questions is ‘God,’” he said. “If you didn’t put ‘God,’ you didn’t go deep enough.”

Here are some pictures from the day:
