“What about Mary?” Advent Retreat, Dec. 1-3

4 pm Friday, Dec.1 — 4 pm Sunday, Dec.3

You are invited to join us at Richmond Hill for an Advent Retreat to explore Mary’s story and the implications for the healing of our selves and metropolitan Richmond.  We will consider how Mary’s nature invites contemplation, compassion, creativity, and ecological concern.  Join  Richmond Hill co-pastoral director Joel Blunk and Kristen Saacke Blunk, who works in environmental restoration, for a time of discovery and exploration.  Our time together will include:

  • Rest and renewal in the company of the Richmond Hill community
  • Praying the hours in the Monte Maria Chapel
  • Consideration of Mary as an archetype of the divine feminine
  • Meditation around the Richmond Hill statue of Mary
  • Walking the labyrinth and exploring other contemplative prayer techniques
  • Singing, storytelling, and other forms of artistic expression

Suggested donation: $180 per person
