Advent Virtual Mission
“Preparing for the Birth of the Christ Child through the Eyes of St. Joseph”
The focus of the Advent Mission will be "Preparing for the Birth of the Christ Child through the Eyes of St. Joseph." There will be four presentations, one for each week of Advent. The length of the talks will be roughly 30-40 minutes with discussion questions available at the end of each presentation and available to print from the website. The purpose of this mission is to bring people together to prepare for Christmas and strengthen the community in light of so much isolation. Parishioners may participate by gathering at their parish or by watching at home. Each presentation will be available at diolc.org/advent. The link to each presentation will be available on the Friday before the corresponding Sunday of Advent, and will be available throughout the rest of Advent.
