A Weary World Rejoices: A Virtual Advent Retreat for Ministry Leaders

“A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices!”  Working in ministry, it can be hard any Advent to focus on the joyful anticipation of the coming of Christ. This year, with all of the extra precautions and roles we have taken on, is no exception!  Join other ministry leaders from around the Diocese on Wednesday, December 2, 2020 from 9am-12pm for a morning retreat filled with song, quiet reflection, engaging talks, and group discussions as we lean into the joy of the season.

This retreat is open to all youth ministers, campus ministers, DREs, CREs, social ministers, and anyone else who works or volunteers in ministry as an adult leader.
