Get yourself prepared for the Christmas season with this one-day Advent retreat led by Sister Cheryl Clemons, “The Eucharist Continues the Incarnation: Insights from the Saints.”
The three-year national focus on Reviving Catholic Eucharistic Devotion has begun. Take “time apart” to reflect on how the Eucharist – the sacramental presence of Jesus with us – continues the mystery of the Incarnation, when the eternal Word of God took on human flesh. Each preparation for Mass and Communion is a kind of “mini-Advent” for welcoming God-among-us.
Various saints in Catholic history been particularly devoted to the Eucharist. Retreatants will be offered insights from some of these saints and can share their own experiences of spiritual preparation both for Christmas and Communion if they wish.
The $45 fee includes lunch. To register, contact Sister Cheryl directly, or you can register online below.View Details
