Have you tasted grasshoppers? Danced with ankle bracelets?* Rooted a plant? Come to our Advent retreat and experience all of this and more as we begin Advent by “becoming” the colorful characters of John the Baptizer, Mary, and Isaiah. Each person attending will receive a goody bag filled with surprises helping us focus on the lives of three major biblical characters, all of whom will enrich our preparation for Christmas. 

*There will be dancing options for those with limitations!

Please register by November 18. Once we have received your registration, we will send you an invoice for the retreat. Please know we have scholarships available; if you would like to make a request, email S. Carol Ann at We strongly encourage you to add to your email contacts to ensure the delivery of emails regarding your retreat. We look forward to welcoming you.
