Advent Mini-Retreat Series

December 11, 2021

All Saints Parish welcomes all to gather to “Find the Light in Your Life,” a four-week series that aims to deepen relationships in the Light of Christ leading up to Advent. The two-hour sessions will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on consecutive Saturdays beginning on November 27, the first weekend of Advent. The series is designed so that participants can attend as many sessions as they like, from one to all four. Advent is the four-week period leading up to Christmas, a time of preparation and anticipation for the commemoration of the Lord’s birth in which Christians also celebrate the way the Lord comes into our lives each day. The locations of the sessions are:

November 27
Hall of St. Charles Borromeo Church
132 McKeen Street, Brunswick

December 4
Cheverus Hall of St. Patrick Church
380 Academy Hill Road, Newcastle

December 11
Hall of St. Mary Church
144 Lincoln Street, Bath

December 18
St. John’s Community Center
43 Pleasant Street, Brunswick

Each session will give participants an opportunity to read, reflect, and share Scripture of the Advent season and to praise God in prayer and music. If you would like more information, contact Martha Corkery at (207) 725-2624 or [email protected]. A special Advent section has been created on the Diocese of Portland’s website and will be updated with new material, events, and opportunities. The section includes many useful features and resources including a variety of prayers, blessings, and reflections; downloadable and interactive calendars; and event listings for the diocese. The section can be found at www.portlanddiocese.org/advent.
