Blessings as we begin a new Liturgical Year in the Church which is this weekend, the First Sunday of Advent.
Advent is a time of joyful anticipation. As we prepare for Christmas during these days of Advent waiting, we also look ahead to the unknown day of Christ’s return in glory.
The Advent Sundays pave the way for the celebration of Jesus’ first coming at his birth in Bethlehem, his Second Coming at the end of times, and his continued coming to all who gather in his name. This Sunday’s Gospel describes that Second Coming and the fulfillment of the human race at the end of time. This Sunday is also the beginning of the new Liturgical Year.
I invite you to come to Advent Evening of Reflection led by Fr. Peter Towsley. Come treat yourself to a evening retreat, in preparation for Christmas. Tuesday, November 30, 2021 7:00 to 9:00pm in the Church. Confession will also be available.
