Advent Oblate Retreat

Recollection: Getting It Together

Fr. Mateo Zamora, OSB

December 11-13, 2020

Every year, we rush to “get it together” for many get-togethers at Christmas. We suspect that this year will be different; 2020 has kept us from doing everything the way we have done it before. But this year has also given us the time and space for recollection.

We have had many opportunities to slow down and consider where we have been, where we are now, and where we are headed. This online Advent Retreat for Oblates will focus on this opportunity for recollection, a different perspective on what it means to “get it together” for Christmas.

Fr. Mateo Zamora, OSB, will lead us in reflecting on what it means to be recollected for Christmas: what it means to “get it together” for this season and, ultimately, what every season calls us to get together.

This is an online, pre-recorded retreat. Links to the retreat will be available for two weeks after the date that the retreat is scheduled. You will be billed $30 for the cost of this retreat.
