In the company of women: an Advent day of reflection

Friday, December 9
10:30 am - 3:30 pm

Dec. 9, 2022

The day of reflection begins at 10:30 a.m. and concludes at 3:30 p.m.

Join us as we gather within the context of Advent and of Nature’s journey toward winter. We will also join with some of the women from Scripture — Mary, Elizabeth, Ruth, and Naomi – and from the IHM tradition — Mother Theresa Maxis and Mother Mary Joseph. Our time together will include quiet reflection inviting these women to journey with us as we ponder anew their wisdom for us at this time. Lunch is included..

Gloria Rivera, IHM, believes that we come from star dust and that we are ‘Earth’s citizens’. She is attentive to the interconnectedness present in LIFE and among all species, as well as the ‘connections’ between our religions of origin and our personal and communal spirituality. For Rivera, all is Intelligent, all is Alive, all is Connected, and all are Relatives. She has experience as a spiritual companion, that is, a spiritual director, recognizing that Sofia Spirit is the Guide.
