Virtual Advent Day Retreat Dec. 4: Waiting with Mary


We’re pleased to share this opportunity for an Advent Day Retreat on Friday, Dec. 4 from 9 to noon, presented by the Jesuit Retreat Center of Los Altos: Waiting with Mary

While many of our neighbors will already be celebrating the “holiday season”, we Catholics have a special gift in the season of Advent. This morning we will take as our model Mary, the Mother of Jesus, to enter more deeply into this time of grace. Together we will contemplate the ways in which our choice to “wait in joyful hope” can help us prepare to receive the great gift of God-with-us at Christmas.

Visit the Retreat Center’s website for more information and to register (cost $30).
