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.
