Advent O antiphons

The special “0” antiphons are sung at Vespers beginning Dec. 17. They are always sung  a week before Christmas to remind us of the coming of the Messiah. These beautiful sketches are a gift of the Ursulines of Bruno.

Advent celebration

Each Advent season the abbey community celebrates with an Advent wreath in the dining room. Joseph Do lights the candle for the first week of Advent on Saturday, Nov. 27.
