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
