About the Event
You are invited to journey with us through the sacred season of Advent as we set time aside to pray, reflect and explore the sacred scriptures that consistently lead to wisdom, truth, hope, and NEW LIFE.
Margaret Frances Riley will be the companion guide during this Journey of pausing and pondering the wonders and gifts of Advent. We will gather via Zoom on Monday mornings (Nov. 28, Dec. 5, 12, 19) at 9:00 AM to ponder the Gospel reading of the previous Sunday. Our gathering each Monday morning will be one hour and fifteen minutes.
