While many see the traditional Advent focus on waiting in reference to the centuries of waiting for the Messiah, Advent also encourages us to “wait in the everydayness of our lives,” Sister Janet writes in her introduction. 

A retreat leader and a consultant for catechists and adult faith formation leaders, Sister Janet also once ministered as Director of Adult Faith Formation for the Archdiocese of Detroit. She is a recipient of the National Conference for Catechetical Leadership (NCCL) Distinguished Service Award.
