Advent Retreat: Await & Awaken

Await and Awaken:  A Lamp for the Darkness
Saturday, December 8
8:30 am – 12 Noon
Location: Cathedral Nave
Leaders: Sue Ficke and The Rev. Dr. Phillip Bennett
Advent is a time of light in winter darkness in which we await with
anticipation the birth of Christ, both in Bethlehem and in the stables of
our hearts. As the Advent wreath forms a circle of light, we will gather
together in a circle of silence and song, as well as times for individual
and group reflection on Advent readings. Continental breakfast will be
served. Childcare will be provided. Registration begins at 8:30 am.
Please register here.

 

Spiritual Growth

“There is a longing in the human heart for what addresses the most intimate core of our being with its yearning for love and union. When we hear the Heartbeat of God, we experience ourselves being called by name.” –J. Philip Newell

Spirituality involves everything we do. Our growth in the Spirit in always linked to action in the world. The cathedral offers various opportunities to nourish our souls and deepen our spiritual life. Along with our worship services throughout the week, the cathedral hosts seasonal spirituality retreats that include meditation, music, poetry, and sharing in small groups.

We also offer spiritual direction -- relationship in which one person helps another to recognize the presence of the Sacred in their lives and to nurture ways of opening further to the Sacred. This is a gentle process with roughly monthly meetings.  Unlike psychotherapy, it is not problem-solving, but focuses on a person’s spiritual growth. Please contact the cathedral for further information.
