We will have Vespers every Sunday night during Advent in the church at 6:00 pm. Come and join in this beautiful prayer! Vespers will run about 30 minutes. 

Vespers, also called Evening Prayer, is part of the Liturgy of the Hours, also known as the Divine Office. In the Liturgy of the Hours, the Church fulfills Jesus' command to "pray always" (Luke 18:1; see also 1 Thessalonians 5:17). Through this prayer, the people of God sanctify the day by continual praise of God and prayers of intercession for the needs of the world.  (USCCB)
