Clergy Day of Prayer

Open to all clergy in the diocese, the Advent Day of Prayer provides a much needed day to focus on the spiritual dimension of the self, a dimension that is most at risk of being neglected in the busyness of ministerial life. Join your fellow priests and deacons in growing in a deeper communion with the Lord in this day of prayer and reflection.
