Advent Reflections

We are sorry that we cannot invite you to Caritas Christi for the annual Advent Visit and Solemn Vespers this year because of the pandemic. Instead, we will offer you spiritual food for thought throughout the Advent season. For each of the four weeks of Advent, a Sister of Charity will share a reflection.

Know that you will be in our prayers throughout these holy days of preparation for Christmas. We look forward to the day when we can safely gather again at Caritas Christi.
