Our Deepest Longing: A Young Adult Call to Community
Advent Retreat for Young Adults
Sunday, December 8, 2019
1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Colin Petramale and Patrick Laorden
What is it that we long for? We have all asked this question at some point in our lives, and it seems even more important in this rapidly changing world. Come join a vibrant group of young adults to explore this question of longing. We will examine how our longing affects our lives in community, and how our longings can be used for the most good for ourselves and others. Mass and dinner included.
This event is co-sponsored with the Archdiocese of Hartford’s Office for Catholic Social Justice Ministry.
