Advent/Christmas Retreat

Add To Calendar

Thursday, December 1, 2022 – Thursday, December 22, 2022
Repeats every Thursday

9:30AM – 11:00AM

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.

Fr. Gerry McKeon, SJ is a Jesuit priest with extensive experience in spiritual direction and in offering the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius to men and women from all backgrounds. He has served as a chaplain at Ithaca College and Cornell University, and on the staff of Eastern Point retreat house in Gloucester, MA.
