Advent Season – A Season of Peace

Several young women gathered at Nazareth with SCNs Luke Boiarski and Chris Kunze on December 9 for time to connect, slow down, and enter deeper into the Advent Season – A Season of Peace.

After a time of getting to know one another, the group entered into prayer, sending love and light to the parts of our lives and world longing for healing and peace. The time continued with a “visual prayer experience” that included creating a picture card, reflecting with it, and then sharing the inner wisdom their picture card was revealing to them.

The women had time to visit Carrico Hall and offer a small Christmas gift to the Sisters before bringing their time together to a close with a pizza supper.

One participant shared this message: “I had a great time of relaxation and healing for our women’s retreat. I always enjoy my time with my scnfamily.”
