Facilitated by Sister Sara Dwyer, ASC

Join us for a few Thursdays in Advent for a time of reflective music and scriptural meditations. You are welcome to come to any combination of these that work for you; one session can be separate from the others. St. Francis of Assisi created the Nativity scene. Francis believed deeply in God’s Incarnation–Jesus. He wanted everyone to visualize what it meant for our Savior’s birth to happen through a woman in a feeding trough in a stable. This makes St. Francis a perfect companion as we journey through the Advent season.
