Our Advent Mission will take place from Monday, December 7th - Wednesday, December 9th.  Fr. John Anglin, OFM from the Franciscan Ministry of the Word will conduct the mission. The theme is Filling the World with the Gospel of Christ. In a world torn by war, violence and injustice and in a Church dealing with scandal and declining membership, the call that came to Francis of Assisi 800 years ago - "Go, and rebuild My House" - is as vital and timely today as it was in the 13th century. the mission seeks to put that call before us to respond both as individuals and as Church.  Please join us.
Day One:     God comes to us in humble love
Day Two:     The Cross: a gift of love and forgiveness
Day Three:   The Cross: Source of meaning in our suffering
