2017 Online Advent Retreat

Madonna and Child

We received the following from about their online Advent retreat for 2017. A modest donation is requested to help offset the cost of their ministry. If you are financially unable, or wish to delay doing so, you are welcome to participate for free. For more information and to register, see the links below.

We all need to pray. This Advent is the perfect time to work on our prayer lives.

St. Teresa of Calcutta (Mother Teresa) said, "Are we ready to receive Him? Before the birth of Jesus, his parents asked for a simple dwelling place, but there was none. If Mary and Joseph were looking for a home for Jesus, would they choose … your heart, and all it holds? Let us pray that we shall be able to welcome Jesus at Christmas..."

This is exactly our goal with the Pray More Advent Retreat.

If you want to answer the questions Saint Mother Teresa asks with a, "Yes," then consider joining us for this online Advent Retreat.

As a part of this retreat, you will receive access to 13 different talks on prayer, the season of Advent, and lessons from the saints. That’s about 4 talks for each week of Advent, and we’ll send you an e-mail with those talks every week. Each of those talks will also come with a printable study guide that has reflective questions and prayers to accompany the presentation, along with transcripts of each presentation. You can participate at your own pace. Some of the talks are 10 minutes long, and some of them are closer to 20.

We hope the Pray More Advent Retreat will help you to intentionally work on your prayer life this Advent — wherever you are, and whenever you have the time.

You can sign up for the retreat here:

All of the retreat materials will be released this Sunday, December 3rd, and we hope they will help you to deepen your prayer life this Advent and to prepare for Jesus' coming at Christmas -- and in your everyday life.

God bless you!
