Believe it or not, Advent is just around the corner!  This year our Advent Day of Reflection will take place on Thursday, December 7, 2023 at the Purification Heritage Center in Sharon, Georgia.   Our facilitator will be Monsignor Richard Lopez, Chaplain at Heritage and former religion teacher at St. Pius High School.  The schedule (below) was created to build in plenty of time for reflection and prayer on the beautiful and sacred historical grounds of Purification Heritage Center and the retreat property.  If you would like to learn a little more about Heritage prior to our Day of Reflection, please visit

Registration is now open.  To register, please email Amanda Hailey at or by telephone at (678) 595-9181.
