Wisdom House offers Advent morning retreat

LITCHFIELD — An “Advent Morning of Reflection” will take place at Wisdom House Retreat and Conference Center on Dec. 10 from 9:30 am to noon.

Participants will be invited to put aside the busyness of the season to reflect on the meaning of Advent as a waiting period for a coming event. Who are the key Advent figures? What kinds of preparations are needed? What “coming” is anticipated?  The retreat day will include prayer, presentations, quiet time and time for sharing.

Marguerite Janelle will lead the morning exercise.  She is a certified spiritual director and has given numerous workshops, retreats and prayer days. She has also ministered as a junior high school teacher, college professor, administrator, director of religious education and pastoral associate.

The fee is $40 and includes lunch. Each participant may bring a friend for an extra $20 payable with registration.  Non-refundable deposit: $15. Scholarships are available.

For further information, call Wisdom House at 860-567-3163, email programs@wisdomhouse.org, or visitwww.wisdomhouse.org.  To register, send payment to Wisdom House at 229 E. Litchfield Road in Litchfield, Conn. 06759.
