Advent Retreat: Lift up your eyes!

An online retreat for Advent

with Canon John Udris and Avril Baigent

What qualities did the wise men exhibit as they travelled to Bethlehem? What inspired and sustained them on their pilgrim way? Attentiveness, Wonder, Courage and Trust are all distinguishing features of their remarkable journey. During this retreat we shall be exploring these key characteristics of our Advent adventure. With the help of wise men and women from our Catholic tradition we shall ponder these important dimensions of our discipleship. Join us in this exploration of the wisdom that continues to guide our steps towards the Christ-child, as we travel again to Bethlehem.

With plenty of time for prayer and contemplation, seize the opportunity to switch off from all the pressures on us and just ‘be’.

Thursdays through December: 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, 7.30-8.30

Join live with people from across the diocese and beyond, or watch the recording.
