What is an Advent Retreat?
A retreat is a time to escape from the busy world and reflect on our spiritual life in a variety of ways in order to get in touch with our God who is in each one of us.
WHY IS ADVENT IMPORTANT? Preparation for Christmas is an important theme for Advent, but more is involved. Advent gives us a vision which is twofold: it looks back to the first coming of Christ at Bethlehem; and, it looks to the future when Christ will come again.
You are invited to take a step back from the routine and the concerns of everyday life, and to reflect prayerfully on the current state of your relationships, with God, with the people around you, and with the world in which you live. This is an opportunity to take some time out from the busyness of life and come to a renewed awareness of the presence of Christ and in His closeness.
You are invited to deepen your relationship with Him; to welcome Him into your life this Christmas in a new way, and not to be afraid to radiate the light of His love.
