2019 Advent Quiet Day

2019 Advent Quiet Day

The annual Advent Quiet Day sponsored by the St. Benedict’s Guild will be December 7 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Parish of St. John the Baptist, Portland.

The leader for the day will be the Rev. Dr. Maria McDowell, Rector of St Philip the Deacon, Portland.  She is from the Eastern Orthodox tradition where praying with icons is simply a part of how one participates in life with God.  She invites us to bring an icon that has special meaning, “that seems to stay with you,” as she writes. There will be other icons on which you can reflect if you do not bring your own.

All are invited; there is no charge, but a free-will offering will be taken.  Breakfast will be provided and please bring a brown bag lunch.  More details from bryantr@oes.edu or players@hevanet.com or retdcleric@gmail.com.
