If someone were to ask if you thought you were a good listener, what would your response be? What would their response be about you? With all the noise, distractions and instant gratification in our lives today, it becomes increasingly difficult to be attentive and present to what is actually going on around us and within us.

If you want to lean into Christmas then sing a song!

If you want to lean into tradition, then sign an Antiphon! Sing Scripture!


Based on an ancient treasure of spirituality still in use today, this retreat will introduce you to the special antiphons written back in the 6th century by an unknown Benedictine monk. Antiphons are short Scripture verses used to bracket the singing or recitation of a psalm or canticle from the Bible. With this booklet, you will be able to pray with them for the next days leading up to Christmas Eve. Use as many of the prayer suggestions as you have time for!
