Monday Night Advent Series
The God of Our Deepest Longings
Advent Series led by Deacon Steve Synoracki.
- Dates: Mondays in Advent November 26 to December 17.
- Time and Location: 7:00 p.m. in the Msgr. Gobitas Meeting Room
Given that Advent is a season of waiting, anticipation, and longing for the birth of Jesus, the title of this year’s Advent Series is “The God of Our Deepest Longings.”
The focus of this series will be our attempt to explore soul-searching questions like, “What are you looking (longing) for?” and “Who is this Jesus we wait for and claim to follow?”
The series is based, in part, on a book of the same title that uses key elements from scripture to explore how our longings and God’s longing intersect.
The book was written by Fr. Peter Van Breeman, a Jesuit Priest and internationally known author, spiritual director and retreat master. Content from other sources will be used to direct our discussions on our longings in light of the challenges of our current day.
Purchase of the book will not be necessary since handouts will be provided for each week’s meditation and discussion. We have 11 used copies of the book available for $ 10
