Advent Quiet Day 2019

Advent Quiet Day: Seek Justice, Love Kindness, Walk Humbly

Saturday, December 7, 2019

“God has told you, O mortal, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice,
and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?”

These words of the prophet Micah capture the heart of Advent as we wait for the coming of the Lord of Life and Light into our world. In this quiet day we will reflect on the ways in which those words capture the ministry of Jesus, and how they can inform our own Christian discipleship.

Led by the Rev. Sister Constance Joanna Gefvert, S.S.J.D.

  • 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).
  • See the regular chapel and meal schedule here »
