Why does Father Jerry get so passionate about this season? Advent is our time to "prepare ye!" It's a reflective season, when we awaken to the arrival of the Christ-child and are reminded to "in stillness wait" and "wait in hope."
How can Advent at Holy Spirit help you do that? Are you making space for God in your life during this time?
Advent Opportunities at Holy Spirit:
- Every Sunday at 8am - Quiet Eucharist... silence, Taize chant, prayerful quiet time.
- Pick up a Holy Spirit Verona Advent Calendar and pray the names of our congregation.
- Watch for the return of the Angel on the Altar!
- First Sunday of Advent - experience the Church dressed in it's Advent blue as we light the first candle in our Advent wreath; Stay Awake!
- Second Sunday of Advent - Join us as we Welcome New Members.
- Third Sunday of Advent - Greening the Church & Potluck after 10am worship.
- Thursday, December 14 at 7:30pm - Blue Christmas Prayer Service in our All Saints Chapel (violin music starts at 7:15pm).
- Fourth Sunday of Advent - Children's Christmas Pageant during the 10am worship & our monthly Children's Eucharist.
"For you O Lord, my soul in stillness waits. Truly my hope is in you."
