This Sunday, November 27, 2016, is the first Sunday in Advent. We will have an Advent Quiet Day on Saturday, December 3rd from 10am to 3 pm. Father Ed and Valerie Coates (Ascension Chorister and bread baking expert) will co-lead the group in an exploration of our relationship with the Divine in this season of waiting, hope and expectation, while making bread as both a metaphor and a spiritual practice. Each Quiet Day attendee will make a loaf of bread and take it home in a loaf pan to be provided. We’ll also serve some nourishing soup at lunchtime, and all are welcome to bring anything additional for lunch. Suggested donation, which covers the cost of materials and food, is $15. (Scholarships are available as well.) Please contact Fr. Ed or Andrew Jones, Parish Administrator, (212) 254-8620 to reserve a place for what is sure to be a delightful and delicious time together.
