How to use this Retreat

Take some time each week of Advent

We invite you to make this Advent Retreat by taking some time in prayer each week. Perhaps you can set aside some time each week for your retreat, say every Sunday morning or some other quiet time that suits you, to make your Retreat. Before you get started read the introduction which explains the praticalities of the retreat and introduces the theme "God With Us: An Advent Retreat with the O Antiphons".

New content each week

A new session of the retreat will be published each week on the Advent Retreat homepage during the Advent and Christmas season. The retreat will be highlighted in Sacred Space and Pray as you go mailings. You may also expect reminders on the Pray as you go and Sacred Space websites and on their Facebook and Twitter accounts.
