During Advent this year, we will be using the Holden Evening Prayers.  This service will be sung with the meditations centered around Praying with the Saints.  Even as we look to Christ as our light, breaking through the darkness of these often cold and weary days, we can also see that light reflected in the lives of ordinary people.  May this great cloud of witnesses inspire our prayers we prepare to receive in faith what they see face to face.

Saints to be considered:

  • December 4:    John of Damascus and Nicholas
  • December 11:   Ambrose and Lucy
  • December 18:  John of the Cross and Katharina von Bora Luther
