First Sunday of Advent Mass – 12.03.23

December 3, 2023 @ 10:30 am 11:30 am CST

Every Sunday, we gather together in community for Eucharist in Our Lady of the Angels chapel.

Our Advent 2023 theme is Awaken Joy: There is Room for You in the Crib. This year, we are joining Franciscans worldwide in celebrating the 800th anniversary of the first live nativity at Greccio, Italy. In December 1223, Francis of Assisi asked his friend John Vellita to help prepare the scene. Francis desired to feel the realness of Jesus’ humble birth in a manger.

For those unable to attend in person, you can attend the weekly livestream on our YouTube Channel. Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel and select the bell icon to receive notifications when the Wheaton Franciscans go live!

You will also find the corresponding Mass Sheet in the description of the livestream video.
