Angel on the Altar Returns!

The Angel of the Altar

Our Sunday School students will once again receive a visit from The Angel on The Altar this Advent.  At the conclusion of classes, students will join Fr. Jerry in looking for the angel.

Then an animated discussion takes place determining what the angel is trying to tell us about Advent, Christmas, Jesus or the Church in general.  She'll make her first appearance on Sunday, November 19 (First Sunday Before Advent).

It's Advent! What's the big deal?

Advent Wreath Main Church

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 Spirihelp you do that?  Are you making space for God in your life during this time?

Attend the 8 o'clock Service for Advent!

Advent Wreath Chapel

Every Sunday at 8am we offer a Quiet Eucharist in our historic All Saints Chapel.

Advent is a great time to consider joining this service as WE WAIT IN HOPE.

It's a contemplative service with silence, Taize chants and time to breathe.
