From: Monsignor James Schillinger, Director, Ongoing Formation of Priests
This year Advent begins on Sunday, December 1. In observance of this holy season, all priests serving in the Archdiocese of Atlanta are invited to gather for our Advent Day of Prayer and Reflection. The Trappist Community at the Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers has graciously offered to host this event on Tuesday, December 3.
It gives me great pleasure to announce that this year our presenter will be our very own Bishop Joel M. Konzen.
We will begin at 10:00 a.m. with time for fellowship and coffee. The first conference will be in the monastery chapel followed by time for reflection. Afterwards, we will join the monks for midday prayer, followed by lunch. A second conference will be given in the chapel after lunch. The day should conclude by 2:30 p.m.
The event will also include an opportunity to attend the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
I hope you will plan to attend.
To RSVP, please email Amanda Hailey at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than November 22.
