Advent Adoration

The Three Advent Challenges

Advent Adoration, Daily Mass and FORMED

Wreath WorkshopSunday, Nov. 27, is the beginning of Advent: a special time to prepare our hearts and minds for the coming of Christ. One of the best ways to prepare for Christmas is to challenge ourselves to take advantage of the many opportunities to grow in faith. And so, here are three Advent Challenges!
 
The first Advent Challenge is Advent Adoration. During this Season of Advent we will have Adoration every Friday from 7:30 to midnight. The "Challenge" is to visit the Blessed Sacrament during this time, even for just 5 minutes, every Friday.
 
The second Advent Challenge is Daily Mass. The "Challenge" is to attend Daily Mass at least once a week. To help meet this challenge, we are adding an extra Mass to the schedule: Every Friday at 6:15am we will have a Rorate Caeli Mass, which is a special Mass in honor the Blessed Virgin Mary, one that may only be celebrated during the Advent Season. Daily Masses are also offered at 9am and 7pm.
 
The third Advent Challenge is FORMED. You may recall that I wrote about Formed in the Bulletin last weekend, and I mentioned the presentation on FORMED, which was held November 22nd. If you missed it, please take a few minutes to learn about FORMED by reviewing the information on the FORMED page on our website, and then sign up for your free access.
 
God Bless you all, and Happy Advent!

St. Philip Offering Rorate Caeli Masses

This Advent we will have Rorate Caeli Masses here at the Parish. Theses Masses, offered only during Advent, are celebrated in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Traditionally they are offered at sunrise and lit only by candles.

These Masses will be celebrated Ad Orientum, and will be bilingual (English and Latin). They will be celebrated on Friday mornings during Advent at 6:15AM.
