Advent Quiet Day for Clergy

December 12, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm


Join us for a time of quiet, reflection and prayer, an opportunity for each to ponder the question: “Who does Christ want to be for me just now?” The shadow side of ministry is the tendency to neglect our own receptivity to Christ, given the constant pull to attend to others. Two addresses by Fr Martin will offer suggestions for thought and prayer.

9.30 Coffee etc
10.00 Opening prayer followed by First Meditation
11.45 Second Meditation
1.00 Lunch with background music
2.30 Reflection and sharing with closing prayer.

The Quiet Day will be held at Loyola on the Potomac in Charles County. The cost is $45 for the day and includes lunch. Please make your donations to Loyola on the day of the event; if you’re writing a check, make it payable to “Loyola on the Potomac.”

Fr Martin Smith is well known throughout the Episcopal Church and beyond as a retreat leader and teacher and as the author of a series of enduring books exploring contemporary spirituality, including The Word is Very Near You, A Season for the Spirit, Compass and Stars, Love Set Free, Reconciliation. Washington is the base of his roving ministry of spiritual formation.
