2017 Advent Activities
Teaching Mass • Friday, December 1 • 7:00 PM • Church
Fr. Brian and Fr. Dan will explain the parts of the Mass as we celebrate it! Attend the St. Patrick Teaching Mass on to help deepen your understanding and appreciation of the liturgy as we see its scriptural, early church origins and discover the rich theology, meaning, and purpose behind the prayers, gestures, postures, blessings, and symbols in the Mass.
Create Your Own Advent Wreath • Saturday, December 2 • 6:15 PM • Social Hall
Everyone is invited to make an Advent wreath for your home. All materials (plus instructions and assistance to make your wreath) will be supplied for $13.00, paid in advance. Bring a pruner or heavy-duty scissors to trim the fresh evergreen branches. Sign up after any of the Masses on November 18, 19, 25 & 26 or download the flyer and registration form here. For questions call Carol Dalton at 636-698-8702, registration is limited to 50.

Anima Bible Study • Tuesdays, Dec. 5, 12, & 19 • 7:00 PM • Rectory Meeting Room • RSVP
Join us for a video-based study on formed.org to create an Advent to remember. Anima is how God enters our human experience. This is a 3-week study with a 10-minute episode to watch each week. Anima’s accompanying discussion guides will help penetrate the beauty and mystery of the Incarnation of Jesus Christ, our redemption, and the mission of the Church.
Advent by Candlelight • Sunday, December 10 • 6:00 - 9:00 PM • Social Hall • RSVP
For the women of the parish. Kristy Allgeyer will be the guest speaker. We gather together, dress our table with candles, linens, and a dish to share with one another. Register as an individual, partial group, or as a group of eight. Then, sit back and enjoy an evening of fellowship. There is no charge for this event.
Advent Reconciliation • Thursday, December 14 • 7:00 PM • Church
Confessions will be heard at 7:00 PM, instead of 5:00 PM, due to our Advent Reconciliation Service. In addition to Fr. Brian and Fr. Dan, several other priests will be present to hear confessions that evening. This is an excellent way to prepare our hearts to celebrate the birth of Christ. All are encouraged to come and experience the healing mercy of God in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Please RSVP to Cyndi Barclay at 636-332-9225, ext. 234, or email@example.com
