Spiritual Opportunities During Advent

Take time. Slow down. Prepare to welcome Christ--not only as he comes to us at Christmas but as he comes to us in quiet moments of prayer and in the events of daily life. The Season of Advent reminds us not to fill up our lives completely with the busy-ness and business of the season. We invite you to spend time before the Blessed Sacrament. There is Exposition Monday evenings November 28 and December 19 from 5:30 to 7:00pm and on First Friday morning December 2 from 7:30 to 9:30. There will be a Prayer Service in the Spirit of Taize on Monday evening December 5 at 7:00pm. We will have a Reconciliation Service with opportunity for private confession Tuesday evening December 20 at 7:00pm.


Our own Fr. John Pawlikowski's talk on Islam to the members of the Servite Secular Order at Assumption is now up and running. This talk, given several months ago, is especially relevant during this time of presidential transition. Click the link here.
