Advent and Christmas Schedule

The four weeks of Advent are an invitation to prepare to meet the Lord Jesus when he returns in glory, or at the end of our life upon earth. Advent is a season of reflection and sprititual preparation. It is not a countdown to Christmas. The days and weeks are very busy. Yet, the Advent redings and seoson offers an opportunity to be less hurried and more centered. We do wait in Joyful Hope for the return of the Lord Jesus. Advent gives us the time to be ready. 


Advent begins December 4th and the Fourth Sunday of Advent is Sunday December 24th. All morning Masses on December 24th day are ADVENT Liturgies; 8:00AM, 10:30AM, and 1:00PM. Many churches are encouraging families to consider attending the Saturday December 23rd Vigil Mass and then return on Sunday Evening for the Christmas  Mass. 


Please plan in advance so you and your family members an be present for one of these beautiful Masses that honors Advent and  celebrates the Birth of the Savior, Christ the Lord.
