Advent Quiet Day

Advent Quiet Day

Saturday, December 9, 2017

Advent is a time of waiting and watching and preparing for the celebration of Christmas and the coming of Jesus as a baby in Bethlehem.

How do we prepare our hearts in such a way that we can experience God’s presence in our lives at any moment for we never know exactly when we will have one of those God-incidences, one of those moments of Divine Mystery when God reveals God-self to us.

Led by Sr. Sr. Elizabeth Rolfe-Thomas, SSJD, Reverend Mother.

  • Begins 9:30 am with a gathering for coffee; ends 4 pm.
  • Fee $30 if you bring a bag lunch ($25 for Associates and Oblates).
    A hot meal is an additional $15.
  • Registration deadline: December 2, 2017.

  • All retreats and quiet days at St. John’s Convent take place in the milieu of a contemporary monastic community which has a daily rhythm of prayer. All guests are invited to take part in the daily Eucharist, and those staying overnight may like to join us in the Divine Office (Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, and Compline).
