Friday, December 6 10:30 am - 3:30 pm Day of Reflection on Prophetic Hope: An Advent Imperative - IHM Motherhouse

Day of Reflection on Prophetic Hope: An Advent Imperative will be presented by Lisandra Pedraza Burgos, IHM.

We live in a beautiful yet fractured world that yearns for signs of hope. Advent invites us to embrace hope as we walk with our brothers and sisters in the reality of these times. Where does each one find hope? How do we build a future rooted in a hope that flows from our unique and varied life journeys? What is the invitation offered each of us, as it was to Mary and Elizabeth, to find life and hope in our encounters with others?

Suggested offering is $50 and includes lunch.

To register, call 734-240-5494 or email riverhouse@ihmsisters.org.

Registration deadline is Nov 24.
