The Franciscan Spirituality Center, 920 Market St., La Crosse, is offering opportunities to celebrate Advent this season.
“Advent Morning of Reflection: Waiting in Hope,” will be held Wednesday, Dec. 2, from 9 to 11 a.m. Do you remember when you were a child, the excitement of waiting for Christmas to come? Advent is the season of waiting and hope. Participants will begin their Advent this year by reflecting on the spiritual gifts of waiting. Cost is $10. It is presented by Audrey Lucier Quanrud.
“Advent Evening of Reflection: Waiting in Hope,” will be held Thursday, Dec. 3, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. It is a repeat of the morning program.
“Family Advent Celebration,” will be held Saturday, Dec. 5, from 9 to 11:30 a.m. “Advent” means coming, and it’s a season of waiting, preparing, celebrating and watching for the coming of Jesus in the manger. Mary and Joseph, an angel and shepherds will share their stories as families create an Advent wreath that can be used for many years to come. Games, prizes and holiday refreshments will add to the fun. Cost is $30 per household (one wreath per registration).
Deadline to register for the Advent programs is Nov. 20. For more information, visit www.FSCenter.org or call 608-791-5295. The Franciscan Spirituality Center welcomes people of all faith backgrounds.
