Darkness and Light, Enemies or Friends?

Advent invites us to slow down, reflect and prepare for celebrating the birth of Jesus, Light of the World. For many of us it is a joyous time of the year, full of anticipation and hope. Yet at the same time we cannot ignore the darkness that overshadows today’s world.

How can we reconcile the opposing themes of darkness and light? Can we have one without the other? Just some of the questions we will explore together with Father Armin Russi, who will lead our retreat. Father Armin is a Benedictine monk and our former Chaplain, living at the Mariastein monastery.

The retreat will take place in one of the beautiful and tranquil rooms of the Monastery at Mariastein.

Confession and Mass will be available in English for those who wish to participate.
