Advent Parish Study Week 1: Watch “Prepare the Way” by Bob Rice
It’s been said that Christmas is merely a pagan day that was Christianized by the early Church and now the pagans want it back. Yet the holiday we call Christmas (and the season of Advent that precedes it) is marked by wonder, holiness, and beauty, which go beyond mere sentimentality. Preparing “the way of the Lord,” as begun by John the Baptist, continues for us now, signaling the beginning of the Church year.
Join our parish wide study in a small group, on your own, or during Community Night on Wednesdays. Find the study on our website, or at Formed.org by entering “Advent”. Printed study guides are available! Contact Samantha at the office for details. We will follow this schedule on our Journey to Joy:
