Oblate Advent Retreat - December 7 - 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
We gather as Oblates and friends to designate our December gathering as the Advent Retreat. Please note the morning start time for this retreat.
Guests are most welcome!!
This year’s Advent retreat is presented by Sr. Kathleen Atkinson, OSB, titled:
A VOICE CRIES OUT IN THE WILDERNESS
10-10:45 The Voice of the Vulnerable
11:00 Mass, Oblations and Lunch
1:00-1:45 The Voice of the Prophet
2:00-2:30 The Voice of Emmanuel
It's easy to think of the cry of John the Baptist in the past. This Advent, open your ears and heart to the cry in the wilderness of our contemporary society. Open your ears and heart to Emmanuel, "God-with-us"
*Sr. Kathleen is the author of two books and a nationally recognized leader in hunger and homelessness education. She ministers to the marginalized people of the Bismarck– Mandan area. She established Ministry on the Margins in downtown Bismarck to provide for at-risk youth, state penitentiary inmates, and all those who are God’s anawim among us. The ministry hosts support groups and a food pantry available when other services are not readily accessible. Volunteers are always needed and welcome.
The Gift Shop, featuring items made by various sisters, will be open for your holiday shopping.
