Nativity of Our Lord Parish in Warminster presents the talk “The Women of Advent” on Wednesday, Dec. 10 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parish conference center.
The Gospels present the figures of Mary and Elizabeth in Advent. Discover the lesser known women who appear in the Advent Scriptures — Tamar, Rahab, Bathsheba, Ruth and Hannah — and learn why the church places them before us for consideration during this season. Learn about these women and what lessons they have for us as we continue to open ourselves to the coming of Jesus in our lives.
Sister of Mercy Marie Michele Donnelly, co-director of Mercy Spiritual Ministries and an adjunct professor at Gwynedd Mercy College, is the presenter.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
