Advent Retreat Day

Advent Retreat Day

On the First Sunday of Advent we held our seasonal retreat day for young professionals, university students and the Assumption Volunteers in Kensington. It was an uplifting day of sharing, prayer, and reflections inspired by the O Antiphons.

Although there are many preparations for Christmas, the retreat centred on preparing ourselves to live this precious time of Advent, these 22 days, getting ready to celebrate the birth of Christ. At the start of the retreat, we were invited to reflect upon what graces we wanted to ask God in these coming days: what do we need in order to be in as good place as possible to welcome the birth of Jesus?
