News & Events
St. Patrick Parish warmly welcomes all the women of our parish, their family members, friends and neighbors to join us for a Women’s Advent Evening of Reflection on Thursday, November 30, 2023 from 6:45 PM – 9:00 PM. Please join us for an evening of prayer, sisterhood, and reflection! All women are welcome for light refreshments & fellowship in St. Joseph Room at 6:45 PM followed by a talk and time of prayer.
This year we welcome back Sr. J. Sheila Galligan who presents Waiting with Mary in Advent: Exercising Patience. Surely admiration and veneration are apt dimensions of Marian devotion. However, another perspective is identification with Mary or the imitation of Mary. In a practical way this means that we say: “Here is a life and faith pattern which I can call my own!” This Advent reflection will probe the implications of the Marian descriptive “Blessed” with a special focus on “Patience.”
This evening is for women and hosted by all women! Water, Coffee, Tea and Paper Products will be provided. While there is no cost to attend, all women are invited to contribute to the evening if able. Below are a few examples of how you can help make this evening extra special:
- Assist with Decorating on Thursday, November 30 from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM (decorations will be provided).
- Greet & Welcome Guests (Please arrive by 6:30 PM)
- Bring a bottle of wine
- Bring an appetizer or dessert
- Stay afterward to assist with room clean-up
To help us plan accordingly, please RSVP by Monday, November 27 to let us know you are coming and, if able, how you might like to help. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to prepare your heart for the Advent Season!
