   A Message from WITHIN MINISTRIES    

Through Grace Within and Ministerio de Mujeres en Crecimiento Personal (peer-facilitated small group gatherings) women are encouraged to  get in touch with their inner spirit and form bonds with other women.  Through the On the Journey Retreat Series (peer-facilitated three-hour  retreats) women experience the quiet, sacred invitation to delve deeper. 

Advent  - “coming”.
Advent, the beginning of the Church’s liturgical year encompassing the four Sundays and weekdays leading up to Christmas.
As many of us spiritually prepare our hearts and minds to celebrate the anniversary of our Lord Jesus’s birth, we use the Advent wreath and candles which are full of symbolism tied to the Christmas season.  The wreath, in the  shape of a circle, denotes God’s eternal love and the everlasting life we find in Christ. The four candles, one lit each Sunday, represent hope, love, joy and peace. A white candle, the Christ Candle, placed in the middle of the wreath and lit on Christmas, represents the life of Christ, pure and sinless.
In preparation, let us take time to slow down and remember the true meaning of Christmas: the prophets who foretold the birth of Christ, Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem, the shepherds’ joy and the joy that the world experienced at the birth of Jesus, and the angel’s message of “Peace on Earth, Good Will Toward Men”.

As we prepare for Christmas, let us enjoy our time with family and friends, with love in our hearts, peace and good will towards others.

We are pleased to announce our new partnership with Retreat, Reflect, Renew, a retreat ministry offering online retreats, personal retreats, and day retreats to help you sort through your relationship with yourself, others, and God in a gentle, non-judgmental, and welcoming place.

Foundress Christine Jurisich's early days in ministry included over ten years as a national leader of Ministry of Mothers Sharing. Among her many accomplishments is the development of the On the Journey Retreat Series. Read Christine's complete bio here.
