This year, sign up for a daily email during Advent.
If you’d like to gather to share thoughts and hopes with others, the St. Mary’s Advent discussion group will meet on Wednesdays at 7-8:30pm: December 4, 11, & 18. We will use the diocesan Advent daily emails as the basis of the group discussion.
So please sign-up for a daily email in Advent with meditations from Archbishop Melissa and spiritual directors in the diocese.
Each day will include a selected image, hymn, or poem that evokes the actions of Advent: waiting, longing, anticipating, expecting, and preparing. The art is a means for awakening our imaginations to renew our journey through Advent once more. Advent is usually the season to once again celebrate the coming birth of Jesus. Yet the scriptures and hymns also point us to the central event we are expecting in Advent: the future coming of Jesus Christ.
This is the time of fulfillment, the time of the kingdom in all its wholeness, the time of final judgement which brings justice and mercy to all. This is the event we await in Advent.
If you want other resources PWRDF also offers daily emails…
Peace, Love, Joy & Hope
This Advent, we've asked four specially selected writers and theologians to connect themes of Advent to PWRDF areas of work:
Each writer delves into the scriptural readings for Advent and connects them to the weekly theme of Advent, and the work of PWRDF. Peace, Love, Joy & Hope will be available for download by November 28, 2019, or subscribe to receive a reflection in your inbox every day of Advent until Christmas morning.
