Rejoice! Finding Your Place in the Advent Story

St. Mary Parish is seeking to prepare for Jesus’ birth and experience true transformation in this powerful season by engaging a new program
from Ascension. This program is Rejoice! Finding Your Place in the Advent Story. This year, we will explore the places, meet the people,
and experience the events that shaped the first Advent, and find our place in the story. By immersing ourselves in the environment that
God’s people were living in as they prepared for the Messiah, we will experience this sacred season in a new way.
We have the opportunity to walk together on a journey to Bethlehem. Because we want this Advent to be a journey we take together as a
parish, we will be holding an Rejoice Program Advent Mission Kick-off after each of the weekend Masses November 20 & 21, 2021.
Each family/participant will receive a Rejoice! journal, filled with beautiful art and meaningful meditations for the Advent season. Join us the
weekend of Nov. 20 & 21st for more information about this beautiful Advent program!

And then join us every Sunday after the 10:00am Mass for the Rejoice Program video in the Parish Center the weekends of Nov. 28, Dec. 5, Dec. 12, and Dec. 19.
