11.30.22 ===== Souper Advent Learning Event

     Have you ever felt that when Christmas comes around, you’re just not ready? Of all the liturgical seasons of the year, Advent is certainly the most stressful, and it may be the most confusing. Many of us have a good grasp on Christmas, Lent, and Easter, but what is the deeper meaning of Advent?
 
     Please join us in viewing a video lecture given by renowned biblical scholar, Dr. Brant Pitre, exploring how the ancient Jewish prophecies of the Messiah can help unlock the hidden meanings of the season of Advent. If you’ve ever wanted to be more spiritually prepared to celebrate the birth of Christ at Christmas, this event is for you!
 
     We will gather in the Old White Church on Wednesday, November 30th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Hot soup and light refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP to Vicki Peloquin at 847-997-7350 or vpeloquin@comcast.net by Monday, November 28th.
