Advent 2017


This Advent, we take the time and the space “to create silence”.

… to deepen our interior life, our capacity for contemplation and for
listening to the heartbeat of God in ourselves and in our world;
… to discern in silence and welcome the action of the Spirit that transforms us,
energizes us, and calls us to live our prophetic and educational mission.
