All Saints Advent Mini-Retreat

In order to help all of us prepare spiritually for the coming Christmas Season, Fr. Don is offering us another of his famous Mini-Retreats. This one will focus on the prophet, Isaiah and the  'O' Antiphons that are proclaimed during this holy season of Advent.  

The importance of O Antiphons is twofold: Each one highlights a title for the Messiah: O Sapientia (O Wisdom), O Adonai (O Lord), O Radix Jesse (O Root of Jesse), O Clavis David (O Key of David), O Oriens (O Rising Sun), O Rex Gentium (O King of the Nations), and O Emmanuel. Also, each one refers to the prophecy of Isaiah of the coming of the Messiah.

The mini-retreat will be held in the Church on Saturday, December 19th at 8:45. immediately following the 8 o'clock Mass. 

This Mini-Retreat will also be live-streamed on Facebook for those who cannot attend in person.
