Adult Education and Formation
|Advent Through Hymns, Sundays in the Parish Hall from 9:15am–10:15am.
Throughout Advent, we will spend time together reflect upon hymns typical of the season. Each Sunday will afford us the opportunity to consider the richness and beauty of a different hymn, its history, musical particularity, and spiritual insights, as we, the people of God, are called to watch and wait.
Please contact Fr. Drew (email@example.com) if you intend to participate. Electronic and hardcopy sign-ups will also be circulated. Copies of the book will be made available in the church office. Donations to offset the cost of the book are most appreciated.
