Advent Penance Service & Peace Tree

Posted on November 19, 2022 in: General News

Advent Penance Service & Peace Tree

This year we will celebrate at St. Matthew Chuch on Sunday, December 4th at 3:00pm

As we prepare for our Advent journey of anticipation and preparation for the Messiah, please reserve this date for the Blessed Sacrament Parish Penance Service. The service will involve an afternoon of reflection, music, prayer, and reconciliation with the Lord. We will have priests available to hear confessions.

Our Peace Tree will be set up with ornaments to take home to pray for a variety of issues plaguing our world.

Reconciliation is a beautiful way to mark the season of Advent.  Come prepare your heart for the celebration of the birth of Our Lord.

Peace Tree

The Blessed Sacrament Peace Tree will be set up at St. Matthew Church this year and be part of our parish wide penance service. We will be praying, as always, for the safety of our active military. In addition, with the world so troubled, we are broadening our prayer intentions to include; an end to gun violence especially in our schools, a peaceful solution to the war in Ukraine, peace and safety for the women of Iran, and Christ's peace for all people.
