Mass Times

The Advent Wreath is the symbol used to celebrate the coming of Christ as the Light of the World. This year Advent begins Sunday, Nov. 30th through Dec. 24th. We invite any parishioner, couple or family, to participate in the wreath lighting each of the four Sundays of Advent.  There will be a Liturgy Board member in the narthex after each Mass this weekend and next weekend who will assist you in signing up for the Saturday/Sunday Mass you attend. You will receive simple instructions and a reminder of the date and Mass time you selected. We would like to thank you for taking part in the Advent wreath lighting tradition at St. Columba.
