The fourth and final Sunday of Advent

The fourth Sunday of Advent marks the final week of prayer before the birth of Christ. It is a time to reflect on and ready ourselves for the peace that is promised with the coming Light. 

The story during this time is when Joseph discovers he will soon be a father and is tasked with naming the unborn child. It is a story of acceptance and promise, and readies us for the coming week.

Please enjoy our final Advent reflection as told by Kathleen Olson, CSJ Consociate. While you watch, we encourage you to think about these questions:

Who are children of promise in your life?

Who can you invite to join your family Christmas that would be alone otherwise?

Where do you wish to find peace in your own life?

"Peace on Earth, Good Will Toward Men."

The St. Paul Province invites you to attend this evening's Vespers service at Our Lady of the Presentation (1880 Randolph Ave., St. Paul, MN) at 4:30pm, all are welcome.
