Day 1: Advent Parish Mission with Fr Sameer Advani, LC

  • Merciful Redeemer Parish 2775 Erin Centre Boulevard Mississauga, ON, L5M 5W2 Canada (map)

The theme of this year’s Advent Mission is Deus Caritas Est, and is inspired by Benedict XVI’s encyclical of the same name which states: ‘Being Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction.’ The retreat thus aims not only to explore what it means that God is love and the implications of this for our life, but to facilitate the personal encounter with that love through prayer and the sacraments of the Eucharist and Confession. 

Later Event: December 12
