About the Event

The Book of Psalms is the hymnbook of the Bible. Many of our most beloved songs are based on these ancient hymns, which are said to contain every possible human experience. In this retreat, we will learn about the different kind of psalms, with special emphasis on those that accompany us throughout the seasons of Advent and Christmastide.
