11:00 a.m. In Person Outdoor, South Parking Lot

We are on our way preparing for the Mystery of Christmas – join us in anticipation this Sunday for Advent Lessons and Carols online and in person. This beloved annual service includes readings, carols and motets that invite us to enrich our Advent journey. The online service will also feature our masked and distanced choir singers from the Christ the King cloisters! Pastoral Intern Sergio Rodriguez will offer the homily on Mary’s Magnificat. The song of Mary envelops our song and life with the promise to be fulfilled; God who is with us is the God who will look upon the lowly with favor.  Because of the annual meeting at 12:45 p.m. holy communion will not be distributed in drive through this Sunday. Bundle up, bring your chairs, and friends and family!
