Advent Retreat

Hope in the Midst of the Storm Advent Retreat: 

The Diocese of Des Moines will be offering a three-part virtual Advent Retreat on December 3, 10, and 17. The retreat will be offered at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm to allow multiple opportunities for the faithful to access the retreat. Each session is one hour.  This virtual Advent retreat will offer a space of elegant simplicity: prayer, inspiration from Pope Francis and local spiritual facilitators, an opportunity for silent self-reflection, and community with opportunities to share in breakout sessions. 

This three-week online retreat provides sacred space to journey through Advent in contemplation and conversation. It is designed to help you find spaces to draw each participant deep into this season that is in need of solace and hope that only Jesus can provide.
