The Benedictine Sisters of Sacred Heart Monastery invite you
to join us for Eucharistic Adoration in Bishop Marty Memorial Chapel.
The first hour of Adoration will include reading and reflecting on Eucharistic Scriptures
and the second hour will focus on Scriptures about “the call.”
It is a way for us (and all join us) to pray for vocations – especially to the consecrated life.
We will be continuing this Eucharistic Adoration the FIRST Sunday of every month from 1:30–2:30 PM. *Or otherwise noted
2017 Advent Retreat Information
Saturday, Dec. 9, 2017 – 9:30 a.m. to 12 noon
Check-in beginning at 9 a.m. – Please register by December 6th, 2017.
The approach of Christmas brings with it thoughts of birth and parenting.The Scriptural stories from the Gospel of Luke used for meditation in praying the “Joyful Mysteries” of the traditional Catholic rosary give us the framework for our Advent Retreat,
“The Joys of Mary,” at the Benedictine Peace Center. You are invited to spend a peaceful morning reflecting on
- Gabriel’s announcement of the Savior’s birth to Mary—as we prayerfully meditate on the Gospel story
- Mary’s visit to Elizabeth—and our own response of praise to God
- the birth of Jesus—as we reflect on several Nativity paintings
- Mary’s experience as a parent in presenting the infant Jesus in the temple, and, twelve years later, in finding her lost son teaching in the temple—as we gain wisdom from Mary and one another in our own vocation of parenting.
The presenter, Sr. Mary Jo Polak, OSB, will help us delve into these mysteries and how they apply to our lives through guided meditation, journaling suggestions, artwork, and small group sharing.
