Advent Discernment Retreat

Listen.  Contemplate.  Be attentive to the stirrings of your heart in this Advent season and in your faith journey.

This Advent Mission Discernment Retreat is an opportunity to reflect on one’s call to mission, to learn more about what a commitment to overseas service entails and to consider whether this might be the next step in your own journey. Retreatants will meet current and returned Maryknoll missioners; listen to mission stories; and engage in small group reflection and discussion. The retreat will conclude with Mass and a light dinner.  There will be time to socialize and also time for individual reflection.  Retreatants will receive guidance from Maryknoll mentors and will also learn about the admission requirements, application process and placement options.

For those traveling from out of town, lodging is available at Catholic Theological Union on the night before the retreat.   The retreat will begin at 10am and end at 4:30pm.  The cost is $30 which includes parking, lunch and dinner.  Space is limited.  Please email Lindsay Doucette at by Friday, December 2nd to reserve a space.
