Join us for an evening of prayer and recollection on Advent. There will be an opportunity for Adoration and confession. We will begin with the traditional Oratory prayers in Church before moving to Fr. Felten Hall for a talk about Advent. We will conclude with Benediction at 9:00 pm.

Solemn Rorate Mass
