OLL News: Advent
This edition features a warm welcome and the beginning of Advent with a day of reflection and the lighting of a candle.
We Celebrate the Rites
On Sunday, November 19, our community celebrated and prayed with those who are preparing to become members of the Catholic Church. The
Rite of Acceptance
(for the unbaptized) and
Rite of Welcome
(for those baptized in another Christian denomination) is the initial step for our group of candidates and catechumens in their journey toward the Easter sacraments.

More than 40 women enjoyed the excellent preparation for Advent!
