Advent Scripture Reflection Day
Meditations with St. Joseph

Using our Bibles and short video presentations, we will spend the morning entering into the very first Advent. 

We will consider and reflect on Joseph – his culture, his world, and his unique role in the story of Christmas. 

As Joseph would have prayed the Psalms, we will explore the Psalms to join him in his prayer as he prepared for the
coming of the Savior.


No cost to attend, but for those interested,

we will have companion journals available for $10.
