The weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas tend to be the busiest of the year. Too few of us take the time or even seem to have the time to slow down and reflect upon the Christmas Miracle. But Advent should be a time for penance, prayer, and preparation: a time to count our blessings and to make ourselves ready for the birth of the Christ Child on Christmas Day.
In this spirit, all are welcome to join us for our Advent Book Club: "Advent & Christmas with Saint Francis of Assisi." This special program of prayer and spiritual reading will meet on the four consecutive Sundays of Advent, December 2nd through December 23rd at Saint Patrick's Parish Center from 1:15pm until 2:45pm.
Each meeting of the Advent Book Club will begin with Daytime Prayer, followed by a guided meditation and faith sharing based on the scriptures and on writings by Saint Francis of Assisi.
A donation of $15.00 is requested and includes a copy of the book "Advent & Christmas with Saint Francis of Assisi" compiled by John V. Kruse. If you would like to join us, please contact Cliff Garvey at 617-926-9680 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please join us!
