Annunciation Monastery Oblate Advent Retreat

December 2, 2018 - 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.


Mary, full of grace

Sister Susan Lardy will lead the retreat. We will explore Mary’s openness/receptiveness to God’s grace and the ways we open ourselves to receive God’s grace through prayer, meditating/reflecting on the Word of God, our thoughts, actions and deeds in responding to those we meet/encounter on any given day. How God’s grace assists us in our faith journey.

Session I: Review of the Annunciation and Mary’s openness and response to Gabriel’s message

Session II:  How we open ourselves to God’s messages
