Advent Retreat

Advent Retreat

“Into His Likeness”

We say we want to follow Jesus, but we set up all sorts of limits around how much we're willing to do. Why is that? This retreat will open up your hearts even further to be transformed as a disciple of Christ. As we prepare for his coming, we should always be ready. What is holding you back? This retreat will be a simple opportunity for personal reflection, small group discussions, Adoration, silence, confession and prayer as the Church prepares for the solemnity of Christmas.

We have extended the deadline to Thursday, Nov. 29 at midnight due to further interest in the retreat.

The retreat is $20 and includes coffee, light snacks, and lunch.

The retreat begins at 9:00 a.m. and we will conclude with the 4:00 p.m. Vigil Mass at St. Thomas Aquinas.

Location: St. Anne's Hall located at the church

Week of Dinner Groups
Nov
5
to Nov 8

Week of Dinner Groups

The week of November 5-8 will be a week of dinner groups. Dinner groups are hosted twice a month in between our socials and speaker series. This is a new part of our ministry we are offering this year. Dinner groups meet just twice a month at the homes of other young adults. The dinner hosts will provide dinner. This is an opportunity to get plugged in with the community in a smaller and more intimate setting without having to just attend a large event. 

What are dinner groups? 
Dinner groups are simply a way to provide Christian hospitality to members of our community. These groups are a way to get to know each other through breaking bread together and sharing in conversation in a more personal setting rather than a large group setting every week. Each group will have 6-10 people.

November dinner group dates:

  • Week of November 5-8

  • Week of November 26-29

Time:
7:00-9:00pm

Do I have to attend both weeks in November? 
YES. We expect that if you sign up for dinner groups in November that are you committing to going to the same group twice in that month. The day of the week will stay consistent.
