An Advent Retreat:
The Gift of Jesus in
Scripture & Image
Join John Gaffney, Diocesan Director of Evangelization & Catechesis, as well as a St. Theresa parishioner, for a morning of reflection and prayer through visio divina. Rooted in the same tradition as lectio divina, this contemplative practice invites the viewer to encounter Jesus through images. We will explore four themes in the morning reflection: the Annunciation, the Visitation, the Nativity and the event of shepherds coming to adore. This retreat mirrors one held last Lent and is an opportunity for participants to experience our Catholic faith in a unique and powerful way. The retreat will be held on December 14 in the Parish Hall from 10am to 1:30 pm.
