St. Joachim Parish Invites You to the Lighting of the Advent Wreath and Strolling Christmas Caroling!

Courtesy of: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/markdroberts/2011/11/25/get-ready-for-advent/ All are welcome and most cordially invited! This event is rated “E” for everyone – the young and the “young at heart”!

The Advent Wreath is an age-old symbol of the hope and faith we have in the promises of God. Whatever your particular beliefs, the darkness that winter brings to us, reminds us that we each can be a light for the world, for our community and for others.

Please join us each Wednesday, starting December 4th through December 18th, as we light the Advent Wreath in front of St. Joachim R.C. Church, Penn and Griscom Sts., at 6:30 PM. We will walk up Griscom St. to St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 4442 Frankford Ave., singing Christmas Carols. Light refreshments will await us! Even the weather is joining in, as it will “warm up” to 50 degrees on Wednesday.

We are blessed to have a diversity of cultures, religions and traditions in Frankford. Come and share yours with us! You will be most welcomed! advent If walking presents a hardship for you, please meet us at St. Mark’s. You’ll be able to tell when we’re coming by our singing!
