December 4th, 11th, 18th 
This Advent Season you are invited to leave the rushed busyness of the world and come into the holy quiet of three beautiful Advent services. These Advent Eucharist offerings will draw us into the awe and mystery of the season as we prepare ourselves to hear the message of Christ’s light coming into the world. Let the loveliness of these candlelit services, filled with sacred Advent Hymns, invite you on a journey to ponder the perfect eternal gift of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
