Are you waiting on God?

Do you find it hard to wait for something? Many of us are waiting for something most of the time- whether it is for a special occasion, for a loved one to recover from an illness or for a storm to pass over. We cannot escape the period of waiting. The question is what is the purpose or value in waiting? In the Catholic tradition, waiting is emphasized during the Advent season. We learn from the Scriptures that even Mary, the Mother of God, spent time waiting. Join us for an Advent Retreat and discover the richness of waiting for the greatest gift of all!

Branches Catholic Ministries will be hosting an Advent Retreat during the day on December 6, 2014 at St. Denis Parish in St. Catharines, Ontario and St. Joseph Parish in Grimsby, Ontario and an evening concert and talk at St. Ann Parish in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Advent 2014 Awaiting His Coming will feature edifying talks from Vinny Flynn, Fr. Richard Kowalchuk, Fr. Paul McDonald, Mother Olga and Dr. Edward Sri, as well as music by Marian Grace. Early Bird Registration and Group Discounts available. Clergy, Religious Orders, and Seminarians may register for Free.
