    • Advent Day of Prayer, Saturday, December 12, 2015 from 9:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.It probably seems as if the Christmas Season is already upon us. Advent is a season of preparation for the entrance into history of Christ our Savior. Christ is the reason for this holy season and we are invited to enter into the spirit of hope filled expectancy. Join us at San Damiano Spiritual Life Center for a day of prayerful preparation led by Father Sam Vaccarella, T.O.R., Director. There will be time for quiet reflection, prayer, and the celebration of Mass at the conclusion of the day. Two talks on “Hope Fulfilled - Promise Realized” will also be included during the day. The cost for the day, which includes lunch, is $30.00.
    • Lenten Day of Prayer: Saturday, February 27, 2016. Our Lenten Day of Prayer and Reflection will focus on the Parable of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32). The parable is a story of alienation and conversion, key elements calling all of us to come back to the Lord during this 40-day sojourn. We will examine and reflect on Rembrandt’s masterpiece of the Father greeting the wayward son. Our day will begin at 9:30 AM and conclude with the celebration of Mass at 2:15. There will be time set aside for confession, meditation and personal reflection on the theme.  Lunch is provided. The cost for the day is $30.00. The day will be facilitated by Father Sam Vaccarella, T.O.R., and director of the retreat center. Please contact Heather Milam at 540-868-9220 or h.milam@arlingtondiocese.org to register.
