Come journey through Advent with Br. Daniel-Chad on Dec. 7

Br. Daniel-Chad, guardian-elect of the Community of the Gospel, returns to St. Mark’s this Advent to stir our hearts as we journey
through this sacred season.

Br. Daniel-Chad, guardian-elect of the Community of the Gospel

We all await light in the darkness and chaos of our individual lives and of society. This year’s Advent quiet day will be on Saturday,
Dec. 7, from 10 am to 2 pm in our Community Life Center. Participants will begin their journey to Bethlehem through contemplative individual and group exercises, including silence, visualization, conversation, journaling and Biblical reflection.

Bring your crèche

To add visual enrichment to the quiet day, participants are invited to bring their family’s crèche for display. Br. Daniel-Chad
will bring his favorite crèche, made in the Kingdom of Swaziland. Participants will return home with a beautiful booklet of Advent reflections for personal use in the days leading to Christmas.

Think of this quiet day as a one-day retreat where we will prepare the eyes of our hearts to behold the light of the Holy One.
