Rejoice! - An Advent Pilgrimage

Advent is a special season for the Church. It is the time when the world prepares to celebrate the coming of Christ. We often lose sight of the point of this season because we get so caught up in our preparations, and we find ourselves no more transformed on Christmas Day than we were at the start of Advent.

A way that our parish is seeking to prepare for Jesus’ birth and experience true transformation in this hectic but blessed season is by engaging in a new program from Ascension. This program is Rejoice! An Advent Pilgrimage into the Heart of Scripture, Year B. This year, we will explore the Sunday Mass readings through daily reflections, prayer, and journaling, with weekly prayer videos presented by Fr. Mark Toups and his friends Sr. Josephine Garrett and Fr. Josh Johnson.

We will meet on Monday, November 27th and the first three Wednesdays in December - 6th, 13th and 20th - from 7 – 8 pm in the Parish Pastoral Council Room. There is a journal that goes along with the program for a cost of $10. Space is limited to 20 participants.

Please contact Diane McCarthy at 781-438-0200 or [email protected] to register if you would like to join in this special time of preparation for the birth of Christ at Christmas.
