Advent at St. Francis of Assisi

LGBT Advent Scripture Reflections

The LGBT ministry at St. Francis of Assisi is hosting a reflection series on the four Sundays of Advent.  All LGBT men and women are invited to join us to reflect and pray; and to spiritually prepare for Christmas.  Whether you are a regular church-goer, or something is calling you back this Christmas, join us during this special time of year.


December 7th, 14th, and 21st

We will meet at 6pm following the 5pm liturgy in the Clare Room.

Advent Morning of Prayer

Saturday, December 13, 2014
9:30 AM-12:30 PM
Francis Room

The O Antiphons express our urgent need for God’s presence. Popularized in the hymn “O Come Emmanuel,” these titles of Christ first expressed in the messianic prophecies of Isaiah are used in our liturgies from December 17th through December 24th.

Through guided reflection led by Sister Fran McManus,R.S.M., we will consider Christ’s multi-faceted saving presence and our response to Him.
