    Waiting, Watching and Wonderment - Weekend Retreat 2018

    The Kairos Centre

    CATHOLIC SPIRITUALITY NETWORK Pre-Advent Retreat Waiting, Watching and Wonderment

    Praying the Advent mystery through artwork, poetry, and the rhythms of creation

    In this retreat we will use artwork, poetry and the rhythms of creation to explore how God comes afresh into our own waiting, watching and wonderment.

    As the autumn fall moves towards winter’s stillness, the season of Advent shifts our gaze to the final days when so much that seemed important will be swept away. But Advent also bids us look forward to birth, beginning, and the budding of a yet hidden spring. We are taken back to the mother’s womb. Life will be renewed in her child of love.

    Led by Magdalen Lawler and Christopher Chapman

    This retreat is an opportunity for members and the wider Catholic Community to come together to strengthen our links and to reflect and deepen the coming Advent season.  Sunday Eucharist will be celebrated during the retreat at 11:30 on Sunday.
