Leave a Chair for Christ

Leave a Chair for Christ

Prepare your heart for Our Lord

You are invited to join us at the St. Anthony Shrine for a new Advent series entitled Leave a Chair for Christ.

The three Wednesdays during Advent, we’ll gather from 7 pm - 8 pm.  We’ll start with songs, prayers, a talk and then confession.

December  5: Holy Longing, Fr. Clifford Hennings, OFM
December 12: Making Room, Fr. Richard Goodin, OFM
December 19: Invitation and Anticipation,  Fr. Roger Lopez, OFM

This is a wonderful way to experience the anticipation of Advent. All are welcome: Feel free to invite your friends, neighbors or loved ones -- perhaps someone you would like to introduce to our faith.

Fr. Cliff Hennings, Associate pastor of St. Monica-St. George, will host the first service, Holy Longing, on December 5.  Get to know Fr. Cliff in this video by Franciscan Media.
