Rejoice with Mary: Informational Video

Rejoice! Advent Meditations with Mary

Parish Advent Mission Retreat


You don’t change your life for an idea. You change your life for a person.

This Advent, don’t get caught up in the busyness. Don’t get lost in the anxiety of preparing for a day. Joyfully anticipate the coming of the person of Jesus through an encounter with his Most Blessed Mother.

Daily Journal

Each Day, you’ll walk with Mary with...

A word - Focus on a single word each day to draw out the details, the specifics of who Mary is.

A reflection - Learn more about Mary, the culture in which she was raised, and the world in which she lived.

A Psalm - Each day, you’re given a Psalm to pray (just as Mary herself would have prayed) to help you enter into prayer.

A reading - In reading Scripture, you find the Word of God, bringing you closer to Mary, who carried the Word in her body.

A prompt - Space is provided each day to journal. Record how the Lord is speaking to you this Advent.
