Advent Calendar 2018

“Now Come in Splendid Glory Bright.”

These words will lead Mass each Sunday during Advent as we begin a new liturgical year for the Church.

Advent is a time to prepare the way for the Lord, especially our hearts and minds. Leading up to the celebration of Christmas, there are a number of events at Corpus Christi and in our deanery during the next few weeks that will help you do just that.

“Rejoice! Rejoice! To you, O Lord, we lift our praise!”

We invite you to mark your calendar and join us.
