Advent Reflections


The hustle and bustle of preparing for Christmas can shut out the quiet of our hearts and minds. Prepare your heart and mind to receive the Gift of the Christ Child as you Wait for the Lord.

Weekly reflection gatherings will be held in the Parlor on Monday evenings at 7pm, Nov 24th, Dec 1st, Dec 8th and Dec 15th.  Contact the office (337-2856) if interested.
