Advent/Christmas Events

  • Advent Wreath Prayer

This prayer may be used for lighting your candles each week of Advent:
Lord God, Your Church joyfully awaits the coming of its Savior, who enlightens our hearts and dispels the darkness of ignorance and sin. Pour forth your blessings upon us as we light the candles of this wreath. May their light reflect the splendor of Christ, who is Lord, forever and ever. Amen.

  • Giving TREE Project

SCCA school students made our "ornaments" this year and used the symbol of an angel - just because they liked it!   Choose an "ornament" with a gift suggestion from the tree near our baptismal window and share the love of Christ with others in need.
Bring your unwrapped gift back by December 11th

  •  Advent Monday Holy Hour

One hour of prayer in church in front of the Blessed Sacrament, with guided points for meditation to provide fuel for prayer.  The Holy Hour is an ancient tradition of silent prayer that provides one with the opportunity to respond to Jesus's invitation, "Come, away by yourself to a quiet place, and rest for a while"       (cf. Mk 6:31).
