Every year, do you get to about December 9th and promise yourself that next year you'll start in early November and plan well for Advent so that you are totally prepared with a plan and supplies (and advent candles) on the first Sunday of Advent? Yeah, me too!
This year, my friends, we're going to do it! Please join me at St. Veronica in Chantilly to be inspired to seize this Advent for all it has to offer. A one-of-a-kind workshop, this conference has been lovingly put together by some very gifted ladies. And they are so pleased to be able to offer it. Colleen Rooney tells me, "Living Advent is a work of love for me, and I dare say for all the Living Advent Team and helpers. It is going to be a grace-filled day. I do not doubt it for one second. God has opened many doors. Evelyn Birge Vitz, author of A Continual Feast, is a wonderful, Catholic woman of many talents, which she shares with a great many people. Her talk will delight, inspire, and encourage her audience. She will lift us up with wisdom. Her three daughters and her daughter-in-law will join her towards the end of her talk to share how they prepare for Christmas through Advent with some of the traditions she introduced as they were growing up in the Vitz family.
