The Cathedral of St. Philip - Atlanta, GA

Advent Quiet Day

Preparing the Heart in Advent

Saturday, December 1
9:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Lanier House


“Our brokenness is the wound through which the full power of God can penetrate our being and transfigure us in God.” – Jean Vanier

The quiet day will take place in the Lanier House on the Cathedral campus, 9:30 a .m. – 2 p.m., Saturday, December 1.

In this Advent quiet day, come spend time preparing your heart for the birth of Wisdom. The heart can be prepared to welcome the Christ, born in the poorest, mostly unlikely corner of our hearts. This day will include opportunities for wisdom practices that prepare and open the heart for transformation: chant, extended silence for individual reflection with readings, the labyrinth, and body prayer.

The quiet day will be led by Lisa Persons, M.Div., who is a spiritual director at Amerson House Spirituality Center behind St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church. She is a long-time associate of Green Bough House of Prayer, has studied intensively with Rev. Cynthia Bourgeault, and has organized monthly Taizé prayers in the Atlanta area since 1992.

The cost is $20 and includes lunch. Please register before November 27 at or by contacting Jeannie Mahood, or 404-365-1031.
