As Advent approaches, we want to take time to purposefully make ourselves ready for the coming of Jesus at Christmas. This month, Katherine and Grace will help us get ready by looking at the life of Mary the Mother of God; to see how she prepared the way for the coming of Jesus. Join us Friday, November 9th for Pints with Padre at the Rectory. RSVP to 740.535.6359
