PARISH ADVENT RETREAT
The Ignatian Retreat in Daily Life is a prayer journey for those who want to live more deeply in relationship with God, to discover or find again the value of prayer, to encounter the God who loves you, and perhaps to get help with a decision you need to make.
This Advent, Gardiner Street Parish is offering a week of retreat in daily life.
The starting meeting will take place on Saturday 5th of December in St. Francis Xavier’s Church, followed by daily check in with your retreat guide (in person or online). Ends with Mass on Saturday 11th December at 6 pm.
