Journey with Mary through Advent - Tuesday Nights in December
Time & Location
The secular world has begun its Christmas Season, but for us as Catholics, Advent comes first. During these weeks of preparation and waiting, the Church invites us to prepare for the coming of Christ both at Christmas, and at the end of time. Join us each Tuesday night of Advent, at 7:00pm, as together we turn to the Blessed Virgin Mary to be our guide as we seek to grow deeper in our relationship with Jesus.
December 1: Mary, Queen of Advent
The first two weeks of Advent direct our attention to the coming of Christ at the end of time, while the second two weeks have us looking to his coming at Christmas. How does what we believe about Mary encapsulate both of these “comings”, and how can Mary lead us closer to Jesus during this Advent Season.
December 8: Mary, the Immaculate Conception
Today the Church celebrates Mary’s greatest title: the Immaculate Conception. More than a title in fact, it tells us precisely who Mary is. How does Mary, as the Immaculate Conception, change our lives today? How does this teaching of the Church impact me, in 2020, in the midst of a global pandemic?
December 15: Mary, Our Mother
On December 12 the Church celebrated the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, when the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to 57 year old Juan Diego at the hill of Tepeyac. What makes this apparition of Our Lady so unique? How does her message speak to us, today, during this particular Advent Season?
December 22: Mary, Queen of Bethlehem
We need a little Christmas! Maybe this year more than ever! However, we do have a couple of days of Advent left, and these last days allow us a wonderful opportunity to grow in grace before we arrive at the Manger in Bethlehem. What has Mary taught me this Advent Season, and how will I be sure to include her in 2021?
