Advent Evening of Music, Prayer and Reflection
Sunday, December 11th - 5:00pm

With Advent upon us we know that the weeks of December will fly right by with many preparations and demands on our time. What will this time of Advent mean to you this year? Advent invites us to slow down and wait for the Goodness that fulfills our deepest longing.  It invites us to replace our worries and anxieties with prayer and spiritual activities that bring peace to us and God’s message of hope to others.


As we prepare our hearts to celebrate the awesome mystery of God’s love as revealed in Jesus, St. Anthony’s will present an "Advent Evening of Music, Prayer and Reflection" on Sunday, December 11, 2016 at 5:00pm in the Church. Laurence Broderick, our Music Director, and St. Anthony’s Choir will provide the music and Father Chris and Father George will be our Presiders. 

There will be refreshments following the Service. Please come and join us and make the Advent Season Special! See you there!
