The Advent of God: Hope for all Creation
Four Thursdays, December 1 - December 22
9:30 - 11:00 am EST (in-person only)
Rev. Gerry McKeon, SJ
Fee: $65 or whatever you can afford
This Advent into Christmas Retreat invites us to spend time in daily personal prayer reflecting upon
God’s drawing close to all of creation. It is a time of waiting for the revelation of Christ when all
creation will be filled with the very fullness of God (See Eph. 3:19). In this Season of Hope, we are
beckoned to open ourselves to the Divine indwelling who continues to be active in all of creation as the
unfolding of grace upon grace. As we move into the final days of this retreat experience, we are given the opportunity to
contemplate the Incarnation as it speaks Emmanuel to us – “God is with us.’ Participants agree to pray privately for 30 – 45 minutes each day and meet for sharing.
