Montserrat Saturdays of Renewal
A life of faith requires courage of goodness. It is the courage to face your world and find your place, remaining centered in The Way of Jesus Christ. You are forever the pilgrim, journeying within your own humanity, and also hand-in-hand with those God gives you.
Montserrat Jesuit Retreat House offers help for the journey with Montserrat Saturdays of Renewal designed to form and inform your faith. On the first Saturday of the month, Montserrat offers a morning of reflection and renewal. The Jesuits and lay colleagues of Montserrat offer the day which includes prayer conferences, time for personal silent prayer, time for sharing, and closes with the celebration of the Eucharist. Those who have made silent retreats will find the morning a rich reminder, though anyone who needs peace and space, sharing and silence will gain a lot.
Each Saturday of Renewal begins at 9:00 am and concludes no later than 12:00 pm. We ask participants to register so we may properly prepare materials and space. Though there is no set fee for the day, we ask for a free will offering to help defray the costs of materials and facility use.
Join Fr. John Payne, S.J. on Saturday, December 2nd, from 9 AM to 12 PM.
The topic for the December Saturday of Renewal will be Advent!
ADVENT as a liturgical season holds a mystical thrill inviting us to await a seemingly impossible dream as our future when history closes and Jesus comes to complete the salvation of creation. ADVENT invites us to probe our past and remember the magnitude of the gift of our faithful God in the first coming of Jesus as the son of Mary. ADVENT awakens us to the excitement of “Emmanuel—God with us” in myriad ways in our present life. Our Advent Montserrat Saturday provides time to prayerfully consider all these comings of Christ as we await Christmas.
We will have refreshments available. Please REGISTER TODAY as space is limited.
