The beginning of Advent is a time of reflection as we prepare our hearts for the birth of Christ each year. This year an Advent Retreat is being offered at Villa Loyola. It will be a week-end retreat entitled “WORD BECOMING FLESH – The movements from womb, through manger, into the world” and will run from Friday 29 November at 7:00 p.m. to Sunday 1 December 1 at 1:00 p.m. The retreat director will be Fr. Philip Chircop, S.J. The cost of the retreat is $215.00, all inclusive (a non-refundable $30 deposit is required with registration)
