About the Event
The season of Advent is a time of waiting in hope and preparing ourselves to receive Christ anew into our hearts and our lives. This retreat is an invitation to come to know Christ in a new and deeper way as you prepare to welcome the Light of the World -Jesus Christ - at Christmas!
This silent-directed retreat will give you some time to step aside and reflect on the deeper meaning of this time of year. A trained spiritual director will meet with you once a day and offer you some guidelines for prayer. You will have time for private prayer and reflection, walks on our beautiful property or in the nearby park, and delicious meals prepared by our talented kitchen staff. The FCJ Centre’s comfortable and peaceful accommodations will add to your retreat experience. Free parking is available.
