Sunday, Dec. 4, 2022
10 a.m.–2 p.m.
Register Today

Amidst the commercial hype of the lead-up to Christmas, alumni are invited to recover the beauty of the Advent Season at an on-campus mini-retreat on Sunday, Dec. 4.   

Participants are welcome to attend the 10 a.m. Mass in Sacred Heart Chapel. Afterwards they will gather in The Cave (chapel basement) from 11 a.m.–2 p.m. for brief scripture-based presentations and opportunities for personal prayer and optional sharing. Lunch will be provided. Retreat guides will be Alumni Chaplain Robert Caro, S.J., and Ann (Buschelman) Cortez, ’96, currently a graduate student in LMU’s Pastoral Theology Program. 

Registration will be open until Thanksgiving but attendance is limited to 30, so register early. No cost to participants.
