Ave Maria! Walking barefoot with Mary

Wednesday, December 14, 2022 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM

"We are all meant to be mothers of God…
for God is always needing to be born."
Meister Eckhart

In this Day Apart in–person offering, you’re invited to come and walk in the footsteps of Mother Mary. Inspired by Edward Sri’s Walking with Mary: A Biblical Journey from Nazareth to the Cross, we’ll follow her most courageous and awe–filled example to learn how we too may walk a little more closely with the Lord. We’ll explore together how to answer the call for our lives, transform the fear that inevitably shows up, and cultivate the total surrender required to be a mother of God. 

Using Taize, simple circle–movement meditation, chanting, journaling and sharing, we’ll explore together just what it means to walk with Mary, one footstep at a time. During this Advent season, open your spirit to the presence and grace of the holy Mother so that Christ may be born in you this Christmas.
