Welcome to the DENA Self-Guided Advent Retreat.

In this holy season of Advent, we invite you to take a moment to stop and retreat, pray and reflect on the true meaning of the holidays. For each Sunday Gospel of Advent, one of the Christian Brothers will provide their personal reflection, and an opportunity for prayer. Please feel free to also add your thoughts and reflections in the comments below.

“If you wish to profit by the coming of Jesus Christ in you,
