A pre-Advent weekend retreat

Why God became man:
Meaning & Consequences of the Incarnation

Friday 24th - Sunday 26th November 2023

“For God has not only made us out of nothing; but He gave us freely, by the Grace of the Word, a life in correspondence with God. ”

St Athanasius

The Christian mystery of Redemption starts with the great Feast of Christmas, when “the Word became Flesh and dwelt among us” (Jn 1:14).

Join us for a weekend retreat just before the beginning of Advent, to give this season of preparation a clear focus on the meaning of Christmas.

Preached by Fr de Malleray, FSSP, the Masses during this retreat will be celebrated in the Extraordinary Form.

The retreat is structured around six talks, with time for personal reflection and for socials.

The retreat is framed by morning and evening prayer, Mass, Adoration and opportunities for confession.
