Advent Triduum (1) (5-9 Dec)
As the frenzy of the Christmas preparations comes to a climax, many people long for a few days' peace and stillness, away from the mad rush. Our two Tridua here in Manresa offer just such an opportunity. Choose either the second or third week of Advent to spend some time with the seasonal themes. Centered on the themes of Advent and Christmas, and in an atmosphere of silent prayer and reflection, these days provide an opportunity for people to get in touch with the real meaning of the season and the real wonder of what we celebrate.
This year, our first Triduum will begin on the evening of Monday, 5 December, finishing with Mass and breakfast on the morning of Friday, 9 December. The second Triduum will take place a week later: beginning on Monday 12 December and ending on the morning of Friday 16 December.
An input each day will offer material for prayer using images and resources from classical and contemporary art, with scripture, music and poetry. These will be silent retreats but there will be times
available to share reflections with others for those
who wish. Daily Mass, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and opportunities for the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be available. Early booking is recommended to ensure a place.
