Keep Vigil... Have Your Oil Ready
A Retreat on Praying Scripture Through Lectio Divina
November 10 - 11
As we approach the end of the Liturgical Year of 2017, we will pray the readings of the Thirty-Second Sunday of Ordinary Time during this retreat. Advent is approaching and we must get prepared. This retreat will not only give a completion to the present year but a renewed hope and preparations for the new year to come.
The retreat will incorporate Lectio Divina, an ancient practice of reading and praying Scripture. There will be group time and periods of silence on this retreat.
Presenters: Mary Louise Jones is a retired teacher at Milsaps College and continues to teach throughout the Jackson Diocese and at the parish level. Claudia Addison has lead retreats and was associated with Spirit Lifting Ministries. She is also an artist.
Both Mary and Claudia are wives, mothers and grandmothers. Their love of scripture has led them to the practice of Lectio and the desire to share it with others. Claudia and Mary Louise facilitate a Lectio group at Saint Richard Church in Jackson.
