Advent Gathering – The Gift of Hope

Dec 5th at 12 pm

With God’s promises, We deepen in HOPE together

Please join us for an Advent Gathering on December 5th after the 11 am Sunday Mass. Virginia Blass, a certified Spiritual Director, preacher, retreat master, and author who has been offering spiritual directions for 20+ years, will come to share her insight on the gift of Hope as part of our Advent journey.  Through reflections upon scripture and personal story, we will reflect upon this vital gift of HOPE. How is God inviting us both personally and communally to deepen in hope together? Please join us for this community event! Lunch will be served. Registration is needed to attend both in-person or by livestream. The livestream will begin at 12:30 pm. A YouTube link will be sent prior to the event to those registering for the livestream. All are welcome and bring a friend!

Experience Taizé Prayer – December 9th at 7pm

Taizé Prayer is based on the Evening Prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours and is modeled on the style of prayer from the Taizé Community in France. The sanctuary is candle-lit and the music is repetitive and chant-like. Those who attend regularly find a profound peace and tranquility in this style of prayer. Everyone, regardless of one’s faith tradition, is welcome to this ecumenical prayer service. Learn more about Taizé: The Quieting Mystical Experience of TaizePrayer.


Pray the Rosary

The Rosary is prayed every Tuesday at 3:30 pm and is outdoors as long as weather permits. If not, the praying of the Rosary moves inside. For those who would like to learn how to pray the rosary, you may do so here:

Prayer Shawl Ministry

St. Anselm’s Prayer Shawl Ministry, “The Common Threads”, provides prayer shawls, lap robes, and Baptismal blankets to those in our community and beyond. As our world can unravel bit by bit at times, in countless ways, the countless circles of compassion knitted into each shawl let the recipients know that there is hope for tomorrow, that someone cares for them, and they are not alone. The act of wrapping another in a shawl knit of your own prayers and thoughts is not only a gift to the one receiving a shawl but for the creator of it as well.
