ADVENT! Preparing to celebrate the mystery
that is Christmas is what Advent should be about, but for most of us, it is
a time of ceaseless marketing and relentless advertising. Add to that
personal rounds of social events at school and work and it is very difficult
to keep a spiritual focus during this time.
One very good way to
focus our thoughts and prayers during Advent is with an Advent Wreath.
Our Lady of the Woods Parish will have a wreath making party on
Sunday, November 30th following the 11:00am Mass.
After the artistic efforts are complete, we will take our wreaths into the
church where both wreaths and artists
will receive a blessing.
We invite everyone in our parish to join us for
this event. It will be an afternoon that will warm your heart.
It can be a great family activity, but it certainly is not limited to the
“traditional” idea of family. If you are single, bring a friend or
come and meet a few new friends. If you are a single parent, gather
your kids of all ages.
What could be easier? We supply the materials
AND clean up the mess! We expect this event to last approximately 1 ˝
hours. Reservations will be accepted on a first come, first serve
basis. We are asking for a donation of $10.00 per wreath to help
defray the costs.
