The Coming of God.  Advent Session II.  Monday, December 16.
6:30 – 8:30 pm.  Milligan Hall

Advent begins on Sunday, December 1st and starts our time of waiting in Joyful Hope for the God who always comes. This loving God comes to us in a special way through the first two chapters of Matthew’s Gospel and the first two chapters of Luke’s Gospel which will form the basis for our Advent Sessions.

We will look at the similarities and differences in each of the stories and most importantly, we will focus on the message that comes through to us and that will inspire us through the prayerful season of Advent.

Please join us as we prayerfully prepare for Christ’s coming.

These sessions are being offered by Sister Maryann Cantlon, CSJ who has a degree in theological studies with a concentration in Sacred Scripture from the Jesuit School of Theology in Berkeley, CA. She has recently returned from California where she was the director of Restorative Justice for the Diocese of San Jose.
