Chicago: Living Ignatian Advent Retreat

Thu, 21 Nov, 2019 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Living Ignatian: Counting Our Blessings Advent Retreat
Preparing for Advent by taking time and making space

Gratitude * Reflection * Leadership * Prayer

Blessings, joy and beauty may abound in our lives, but do we always make space to notice God’s grace and gift? Amid our busy days, do we make the time to say “thank you” for the blessings we receive?

Please join Dr. Kathy Coffey-Guenther, senior mission and Ignatian leadership specialist, and your fellow Marquette alumni, parents and friends as we take time to pray, reflect and share community as we enter this upcoming holiday season. This retreat will include time for quiet personal reflection as well as shared conversation. All are welcome to join us in this peaceful space, abundant in nature, beauty and comfortable nooks for prayer and reflection.
