Visit from St. Nicholas

Join us for a weekend of St. Nicholas Celebration after all the Masses, December 5 & 6 in Nolan Hall! There will be individually wrapped treats, crafts, and a visit with St. Nick himself!

Scripture Study

On December 10 & 17 at 5:45pm, before Evening Prayer and O Antiphons, we will have a Scripture Study on Peace and Forgiveness.  Join us in Nolan Hall.

Advent Evening Prayer

Evening Prayer (also called Vespers) is part of the Liturgy of the Hours. In the Liturgy of the Hours, the Church fulfills Jesus' command to "pray always.” Through this prayer, the people of God sanctify the day by continual praise of God and prayers of intercession for the needs of the world. Join us for Prayer on Thursday,  December 10 at 7pm in Church. Stop in for a short period of prayer, silence, and reflection as we anticipate the coming of the Lord.

Reconciliation (Confession)

Celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation on Sunday, December 13, at 4pm at St. Joseph Church.   The Sacrament of Reconciliation will also be celebrated Monday, December 21 @ 7pm as well as on Saturdays 3:30-4:30pm.  

O Antiphons Service: Prayer, Music, & Scripture

Join us on Thursday, December 17 at 7pm in Church for an evening of prayer, music, and reflection as we prepare in this season of Advent.
