Pastoral Care  Attend to the Gift

Pastoral care is a subject near and dear to the heart of Advent. Through this ministry we care for one another so we have the ability to share as we go into the world to "make Christ visible..." Pastoral Care focus is on Newcomers, Visitation, Hospitality, Prayer, and Transitional Support & Relationships.  

We have a visitation ministry - volunteer parishioners bring our alter flowers used in our services to a person who is ill or alone and in need of comfort.

Church of the Advent Birthdays and Anniversaries 

Anniversaries In January

Carlo and Gaila Ciccarone

Loving God, help them to remember when they first met, and the strong love that grew between them.  Help them continue to work that love into practical things so nothing can divide them.  Give them words that are both kind and loving, give them hearts that are always ready to ask forgiveness as well as to forgive, and fill the rest of their days together with hugs and kisses.  Amen.

Watch over your children, O Lord, as their days increase; bless and guide them wherever they may be.  Strengthen them when they stand.  Comfort them when discouraged or sorrowful. Raise them up if they fall.  In their hearts, may your peace, which passes all understanding, abide all the days of their life; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
