Eucharist will follow at 5 p.m.
Join Fr. Padraig to enter more deeply into the Advent season through a contemplative day. This is an opportunity to spend time reflecting on the gift of hope that lies within us all. Reconnecting with both the longing for it and the joy of this holy gift can transform the days leading us toward the promise of light and life that is renewed in the season of Christmas and the gift of a New Year. Eucharist will close the day for those who wish to linger.
Fr. Padraig Greene, a priest of the Oakland diocese, currently serves as a hospital chaplain. He served for many years as a priest in the Catholic community of Pleasanton, California. Padraig directed the retreat center at the Family Life Centre in Boyle, Ireland, which was founded in 1987 as a diocesan response to family needs, providing a variety of services and programs.
