Facilitators: Mark & Lisa Kutolowski

Advent is a season of joyful anticipation, when the people of God prayerfully wait with eager expectation for the coming of the incarnated Christ. For Christians, it is a season especially devoted to prayer and fasting, disciplines of holy waiting.

This Advent series will introduce participants to four contemplative prayer practices rooted in the Christian tradition. Meeting Sundays at 10am in Norwich, VT, we will focus on one prayer form a week and seek to practice them throughout the week. Participants are welcome to come to one session or all five!
