An Advent Meditative Writing Retreat with Meg Ashcroft
We have come to expect immediate connection when we use our phones, computers and other devices. Do we as easily realize our inseparable connection with the Holy One? In the season of Advent, we reflect on God’s deep desire to be in relationship with all of us which resulted in the divine becoming human in Jesus. We are given this gift that we might more fully appreciate that nothing can separate us from Love.
During this retreat day, we will have the opportunity to explore the all-embracing interconnectedness which gives meaning to our lives and our world.
All are welcome to participate and no writing experience is necessary.
Please register by Tuesday, December 3, 2019.
The Norbertine Community is a religious order that vows a lifetime of conversion and worship in all we do. We seek to grow in holiness in our relationship with God in, through, and with one another and those whom we serve.
In the years after Vatican II, under the leadership of Abbot Benjamin Mackin, the men of St. Norbert Abbey in DePere, Wisconsin missioned some men to the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, New Mexico for a new Norbertine foundation.
