Advent Quiet Day - Saturday, December 7, 2019

  • 9:00 am - Though Advent is meant to be a preparatory time to ready ourselves for both the Incarnation and the Second Coming, the fact is that it is often an increwdibly stressful and busy time. Take a couple hours and quiet your soul. We'll start with prayer, and then move into quiet time where people can move between several quiet activity stations. We'll close at 11:00 a.m. with Eucharist, followed by lunch.

Christmas Caroling - Saturday, December 7, 2019

  • 12:45 pm - Parish Music Director Carrie Arndorfer invites paish members and friends to join us for Christmas caroling. This is a great way to share some Advent/Christmas joy. The presence, music and warmth are always appreciated and are such wonderful gifts. We'll head over to Three PIllars at 12:45 p.m. We always have fun and the residents really enjoy singing along with us to. Hope you can make it! Kids are most welcome!

Longest Night Service - Sunday, December 15, 2019

  • 7:00 pm - In the long, dark winter nights, memories of past experiences and the pain of present situations can become overwhelming. For some, the Christmas season is very difficult. During this prayer evening, we invite you to listen. We invite you to pray. We invite you to sing, if you are able. We invite you to offer your experiences and feelings to the Christ-child. We pray that you will find hope and comfort in knowing that you are not alone. We'll also honor in a special way loved ones who've gone before us.
