Advent Vesper Services
The Priests and Deacons of our parish invite you to join them in prayer each week night this Advent Season at 7:00 PM in the Chapel of Life beginning 12/01/2014 to pray Vespers, the Evening prayer of the Church.
The Liturgy of the Hours, also known as the Divine Office or the Work of God is the daily prayer of the Church, marking the hours of each day and sanctifying the day with prayer. The Hours are a meditative dialogue on the mystery of Christ, using scripture and prayer. The Divine Office "is truly the voice of the Bride herself addressed to her Bridegroom. It is the very prayer which Christ himself together with his Body addresses to the Father." Evening prayer includes hymns, selections from the Psalms, a scriptural proclamation, intercessions, and other prayers.
Printed copies of Vespers will be provided for each evening so we may all fully participate in prayer together. Please consider sanctifying each day of Advent to the Lord by joining your clergy as a community for the Evening prayer of the Church.
Please download a copy of this week's bulletin and help with the new evangelization by sharing with a neighbor or friend all of the many activities our parish has to offer.
