Women’s Advent Retreat 2023

Women's Advent Retreat 2023

In the Spiritual Exercises, we are challenged to attend to the movements in our soul. Feelings offer direction. Feelings over time begin to prompt us to God’s movement. This Advent season, our world seems to hold its breath… we await the Christ Child in possibility and potential: of peace/war, of hope/loss, of love/fear.  

Our 2023 Women’s Advent Retreat focuses our prayer life at a time in the liturgical calendar when we hold endings and beginnings. Every week you will receive a reflection based on the Sunday Advent Gospel. The reflectors are women from various Midwest Jesuit schools, sharing their prayer and insights into our shared mission. We pray together in our tensions, feelings, questions … and listen. And pray for the interior freedom to begin to move.   

If you would like to sign up for this personal retreat, click the Register button below.  Feel free to share this link with others in your circles – regardless of gender – inside our network or outside.  All are welcome.  You will receive a reflection every Sunday of Advent, beginning with an introduction on November 26th.
