Week 1, Dec. 1: “The YES of Mary”

Presenter: Sister Gilla Dubé, CSJ
Advent is a rich liturgical time filled with incredible imagery and persons with whom we are invited to journey. One of those persons is Mary. What was our image of Mary as children? Has that image changed over the years? Mary said YES to God. How did that YES change her life? What can her witness offer us in our present reality?

Week 2, Dec. 8: “Joseph”
Presenter: Sister Dian Hall, CSJ
Although Joseph was a quiet participant in the nativity story, his persistent trust in God’s plan makes him a significant character in the birth of Jesus. Joseph listened to an angel, even though he did not understand Mary’s pregnancy. He believed God’s faithfulness and participated in God’s outpouring of love. Joseph’s unwavering faith helped bring about the incarnation. How do we participate in Christ’s presence in the world today? Join us as we take a closer look at the quiet Jewish man whose love and trust in God gives us a beautiful example of faith in our own lives.

Week 3, Dec. 15: “Zachariah and Elizabeth”
Presenter: Sister Mary Jo Thummel, CSJ
Zachariah and Elizabeth – righteous before God but barren. What does this speak to our hearts? How is it possible to be righteous and barren? Are there places where our lives feel barren? How do we reconcile a loving God with the empty spaces in our lives?

Week 4, Dec. 22: “John the Baptist and Jesus”
Presenter: Sister Jean Ann Walton, CSJ
Who was John the Baptist? Did he matter? We know who Jesus is, but who were they to one another? Let’s explore their relationship to one another.
