About the Event
The scriptures and imagery of Advent are lovely, deep, and full of mystery. This candlelit liturgy blends word, song and prayer as we visit the ancient words of the prophets and the radical “yes” of Mary. In these winter tales we recognize our own story, and prepare to meet the Holy Child born in us.
