The Church of St. Dennis is offering a great opportunity for families, parents and homeschoolers for Advent. St. Dennis Religious education is hosting an Advent Family Mini Retreat on Sunday, Dec. 12 between the 8 a.m. and noon Masses. Advent is a penitential season in which we prepare our heart for the coming of Jesus as a babe in the manger. We focus on the Advent themes of joy, hope, expectation and preparation. The Advent Family Mini Retreat includes Advent-themed games, prayer, learning centers, music and crafts. Over the years, our family has participated in and helped to coordinate many of these Advent events. What a great way to explore the blessings of Advent as a family. Family and friends are invited. Please RSVP at 248-545-1926 or visit The Church of St. Dennis parish website here.
