Advent Day of Reflection via Zoom – Saturday 19th December 2020

You can book now for an Advent Day of Reflection which will be held via Zoom on Saturday 19th December 2020 from 10am-4pm. Hosted by Drumalis, this will be led by Sister Pam Thimmes OSC.

Sister Pam is a Poor Clare sister living at the Poor Clare Monastery in Faughart, Co Louth. She teaches Scripture in each of the Drumalis Adult Faith Development programmes and in the Permanent Diaconate programmes for several dioceses. Sr Pam is also an experienced and popular spiritual director and retreat leader, as well as a working photographer.

A spokesperson for the organisers told The Church Page:
“For most of us, 2020 has been an unprecedented time – a time of change, loss and grief, confusion, discovery, wonder and uncertainty. In some ways it has been an extended advent (arrival, emergence). Isaiah’s words came to his people in exile. This day of reflection will allow us to bring these feelings and experiences of exile and newness of life into focus and perceive anew Christ born among us and living among us. Our souls, like Mary’s have been pierced and transformed. Let us open our hearts to God’s newness born each day among us. Do we see it and how do we live it?”
