1st Sunday of Advent

November 27, 2022

A little description of the season:
We are most familiar with preparing for Christ’s coming at Christmas,
we are probably also aware that Advent focuses on Christ's return at the end of time.
Thirdly, we wait for Christ to come to us every day.
Thus, there are three comings of Christ that we wait for in Advent.


This coming Advent, we will be displaying our updated Advent Wreath with beautiful,
new taller candles and a fresh new look.
If you would like to make an 
Advent Wreath Memorial donation
in memory of a deceased loved one, please feel free to
place your 
donation in an envelope marked 


with yours and your loved one’s name(s).
Donations can be put in collection baskets or dropped off at the rectory.
