Advent at St. Mary’s Swormville

Advent 2020

Mark 1:3

A voice of one crying out in the desert:

‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths.’

 

Advent Greetings!

The season of Advent is a time to prepare our hearts and renew our lives to welcome Jesus Christ. At St. Mary’s we are committed to providing the opportunity for all of us to prepare this Advent Season. This list below has every event our parish will be offering throughout the Advent season, along with our Christmas schedule. Please know that you are always welcome at St. Mary’s to prepare your life to encounter Jesus. I pray all of us afford ourselves of the opportunity to make our hearts and homes ready for the Christ child.

Happy Advent and Keep Smiling 🙂
