Advent Call: Sharing the Present of Presence

As we prepare for the celebration of God's present to our world in the loving presence of Jesus, we seek to open our hearts to the call of sharing personal presence in this holy season and beyond.

Jesus gave few material things to people. What Jesus gave most was His personal presence: reverent and compassionate attention to the present moment, the person right in front of Him, the immediate situation, the now-moment. Together we will explore ways to be more gracefully present to ourselves, others and our God.

Session 1: The Holy Meaning of Presence

Session 2: Opening to the Grace of Real Presence with Ourselves, Others, God

Session 3: A Prayerful Experience of Presence

Lunch is included
