Description

Join best-selling author Fr. Nathan Castle, OP for a special Advent Overnight Retreat. Retreat sized is capped at 20 participants. Please Register by November 1st.

A note From Father Nathan:

I once complained to God, “I don’t have time!”

God replied, “Nathan, I’ve given you eternity. What more do you want?”

The folks at Vallombrosa Retreat Center invited me to start Advent with a retreat. Advent begins at sundown on Saturday, November 30. That’s the Saturday after Thanksgiving and “Black Friday,” often considered the start of the Christmas shopping season. It’s a busy time.

I wondered, “Won’t people say, ‘I’d love to go on retreat. I just don’t have time?”

Advent, of course, begins the Church’s new year. We move from ordinary to extraordinary time.

It’s a season of waiting, of being still.

I’ve created a 24-hour overnight retreat called:

“What are You Waiting For?

Becoming the Christ You Were Meant to Be”

What if you did Thanksgiving and Black Friday but set aside 24 hours for the Holy Spirit to get your Advent started?

We’ll begin on Saturday, November 30th at 1pm and conclude with lunch beginning at noon on Sunday, December 1st. There will be time for retreat talks and prayer experiences. There will be time for rest and stillness. There will be time for compline, the Church’s consecration of the hours we spend in restorative sleep. There will be time for pondering the path of our pasts that brought us to this present. There will be time for meals, spiritual conversation and celebration of the Mass for the First Sunday of Advent.

What are you waiting for? Register today.

Love,

Father Nathan Castle, OP
