The word Advent is derived from the Latin phrase: Adventus Domini, meaning “the coming of the Lord.”  Often, this is understood to refer to the first coming of Jesus.  Rather, Adventus Domini refers to the Coming of the Lord in the past, today, and especially at the end of time.  The season of Advent, therefore, is a season filled with anticipation, not just for the commemoration of the birth of Jesus — the First Coming of the Lord — but also anticipation of current, future and final manifestations.

The Ursuline Sisters invite you to join them for Evening Prayer with Silent Reflection on the Wednesdays of Advent: Dec 1,8,15 and 22, 2010 at 6:30 pm in the Ursuline Sisters Motherhouse chapel  4250 Shields Rd. Canfield OH, to celebrate the “Coming of the Lord” within our lives.

    The 6:30 Evening Prayer in the Motherhouse Chapel is open to anyone who would like to join us for quiet reflection and the Prayer of the Church. This is an invitation to take a few moments for yourself and to enter into the spirit of this rich liturgical season.

  2. Northeastern Ohio is a great place in the winter, especially if you like a lot of snow. The snow makes Christmas. Thanks for visiting our site. We will remember you in our prayers Christmas Eve.

  3. I wish I’m in Ohio for the Christmas season. I was there last March, first time. It’s a great place. I think it will be more enjoyable to be there on Christmas especially for a Catholic like me.

    Merry Christmas in advance from the Philippines.

  4. This is open to anyone who wants to set aside some quiet time in this hectic season. We will spend time in prayer with words, music and silence and prepare our hearts for the celebration of Christmas. Hope you will be able to join us.

  5. Is this open to anyone?
