Advent too often gets swallowed up by the pre-Christmas frenzy. We shop, we bake, we write cards, we may even read the Advent Blue Book for five minutes a day. But read the Advent scriptures, meditate on the Incarnation— oh, no,--can’t—no time! The Emmaus group invites you to make time. One or two evenings during Advent-- Wednesday, December 9th and/or Tuesday, December 15th at 7:30 pm in the Church hall-- come and reflect upon and pray with the scriptures of Advent. We will use the Advent book from the Loyola Press to guide us, the same format the Lenten Mission groups use. This year, live the Advent experience.
