Our Advent theme this year is the O Antiphons. These are ancient antiphons dating back to at least the 6th century, traditionally used as the Magnificat antiphons during Vespers on the last seven days of Advent. Each one is a name of Christ used in Scripture, starting with O, thus the name the “O Antiphons.” We hope you can join us during Advent to learn more about them.
Please join us for special worship opportunities during Advent. We will have Advent services every Wednesday (December 6, 13, 20) at noon and at 7pm, with soup supper starting at 6pm.
Do you feel busy in Advent? We will also have a special Saturday evening services on December 9, 16, and 23, starting at 5:00pm. They will feature quiet music and a short homily on an O Antiphon. These services are designed to be a peaceful way to end the day each Saturday in Advent.
We hope you can join us for this special season at Gloria Dei!
