The Journey to Bethlehem

December 6 – 8, 2019

     To help prepare for the Christmas season we will explore Mary and Joseph’s Journey to Bethlehem through the lens of the heroes journey: departure, ordeal, return and transformation. The team will offer presentations, reflection time and discussions that connects the Holy Family’s journey with ours. The role of prayer, telling our story, silence, and journeying with others will be highlighted.

This silent retreat will also include Mass, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, music, art, prayer services and time to immerse into the beautiful and holy season of Advent. This retreat starts at 4pm on Friday and concludes on Sunday at 1pm.

Cost: $200 includes 6 meals, a private room and bath, towels and linens. 

Each retreatant will receive Steve Givens’ new booklet, “The Journey to Bethlehem”.

 Retreat team: Fr. Tom Santen (pictured above speaking at the 2017 Advent Retreat.) Lucia Signorelli, Steve Givens,  and Jim Ford
