Christmas Retreat - Behold: Images of the Nativity

Christmas Retreat - Behold: Images of the Nativity

Sunday-Wednesday, December 23–26, 2018

In Lectio Divina we pause from our busy lives and to listen “with the ear of our hearts” to the words of scripture. In Visio Divina we are invited to gaze “with the eye of our hearts” at the truth of God’s word in visual form.

Sr. Constance Joanna Gefvert, SSJD will draw on her love of scripture and art in leading participants to reflect anew on the Christmas story both in words and in visual images of the Nativity. See bio here »

Share with the Sisters in the festive liturgies, meals, and celebrations of Christmas.

  • 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).
