Advent Devotions and Events
Advent is observed in many Christian churches as a
time of expectant waiting and preparing to celebrate
the nativity of Jesus at Christmas. Here at SCL, you
are welcome to participate in these customs and devotions while
Light the Advent Wreath:
If you would like to light our Advent
wreath yourself or with family or friends, please sign up for the
date and Mass time you’d like in the sign-up book in the vestibule.
Booklets with daily reflections on Advent are available
in the church vestibule at no charge.
Delight a Child in Need:
Please take a gift tag for a boy or girl from the angel tree that will be in the vestibule December 1-13
and return it attached to an unwrapped gift. Gifts may be toys
and/or clothing to be shared with The Women’s Centers, our
sharing parish St. Roman’s, and local families.
On Tuesday, December 17, at 7:00pm at
OLPH, experience God’s forgiveness and mercy in a communal
reconciliation service with the option to confess individually.
Celebrate Simbang Gabi:

faith and culture with our Filipino parishioners at Mass in church
