Advent Prayer Vigil

St. Mark's sanctuary

Be still! Hark! Pay close attention! Listen!

Quiet us, Lord, that we might be able to hear over the noise of our busy lives, beyond the frenzy and the clutter of our Christmas preparations. Help us to pause and become still, even for a moment, that we might hear the herald of angel voices: “Glory.” “Peace on Earth.” “Mercy.” “Reconciliation.” “Joy.” “Christ is Born.”

Join us for our Advent Prayer Vigil, an opportunity to enter our beautiful sanctuary and sit in silence; to quiet the self; to be still and know that God is God; to prayerfully meditate on Advent, the coming of the Christ, and to know him as Emmanuel, “God with us,” with the power to transform our hearts, our lives, even this broken world in which we live.

Meditative music and an Advent Prayer Guide will be provided.
