Advent Quiet Day ~ Visions of Mary
Quiet Day Information
As we enter the Season of Advent, all are welcome to a special Quiet Day, hosted by St. John's Episcopal Church at 524 Washington Avenue in Grand Haven, MI, on the first Saturday in Advent, December 7, from 9am-4pm. The Quiet Day will be led by our rector, Fr. Jared Cramer. The theme will be "Visions of Mary." The day will be structured around some of the various visions of Mary that exist in cultures around the world, including Our Lady of Guadalupe, Our Lady of Fátima, Our Lady of Knock, and Our Lady of Walsingham. We will hear some of the spiritual significance of these visions and have time for the daily office, personal quiet prayer, meditation, and reflection.
Breakfast snacks along with lunch are all included, but you must register in advance below. There is a suggested donation of $20 to cover expenses, but scholarships are available upon request. Any funds raised in excess of the quiet day costs will be donated to our Loving Spoonfuls Meal Ministry, providing a free hot meal to the hungry on Sundays at 1pm and Wednesdays at 6pm.
