Advent Days of Prayer: "Let it Go ..."

Thursdays, December 4, 11 and 18, 2014

We often talk about the need to de-clutter our lives; to rid ourselves of the stuff that impedes our relationship with God and neighbor. Advent, the liturgical season of waiting and preparation for Christmas, can be a good time to embrace the mantra: Let it Go.

December 4:  "Letting Go of the Past, Making Room for Christ in Our Hearts" presented by Fr. Jim Van Dorn, OFM, Conv. and Kathy Berken
December 11:  "Letting Go of the Future, Making Room for Christ in Our Hearts" presented by Br. Bob Roddy, OFM, Conv. and Kathy Berken
December 18:  "Letting Go - Living in the Present Moment, Making Room for Christ in Our Hearts" presented by Kris Joseph and Debbie Koop.
