Registration is open and all are invited to participate in two Advent programs being sponsored this holiday season by Fairfield University’s Murphy Center for Ignatian Spirituality.

Advent Reflections: An Online Series

Feeling overwhelmed by the bustle of the holiday season? Allow yourself the gift of a few moments of quiet contemplation each day of Advent, courtesy of the Murphy Center for Ignatian Spirituality’s new online 2023 Advent Reflections Series.

Beginning on Dec. 3 (the first Sunday of Advent) and running through Christmas Day, the Advent Reflections Series will offer participants access to daily five-minute online videos, each hosted by a spiritual director of the Murphy Center. Each host will offer a reflection on that day’s scripture reading, and encourage viewers to enjoy a few moments of peace and prayer in preparation for the celebration of the birth of Jesus at Christmas.

Led by Rev. John Savard, S.J.,’78, assistant director of the Murphy Center, the Advent Reflections Series is free and open to the Fairfield community – faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of Fairfield University and Fairfield Prep are encouraged to participate.

Registration will close on Nov. 27.

Women’s Advent Retreat

With a theme of “Tidings of Comfort and Joy,” the Women’s Advent Retreat will take place at the Dolan School of Business Event Hall on Tuesday, Dec. 5. Drinks and snacks will be served at 6 p.m. and the retreat will begin at 6:30.

Sponsored by the Murphy Center for Ignatian Spirituality and Campus Ministry, attendance at this popular annual evening of fellowship and reflection fills up quickly.

Registration will remain open until Dec. 1 or until the event sells out.
