Advent will be upon us very soon. St. Francis Xavier Parish is pleased to offer you a chance to make a family-centered keepsake for you to treasure for years to come.

Imagine an on-trend Jesus-centered Advent Calendar, custom-designed by a wonderful artist from our parish. You or your children’s own creativity will make it personal and a treasure you’ll keep for years to come as you color these images associated with the coming of Christ. Twenty-four numbered cards bear images that bring the season to mind and also countdown the days until Christmas. Each day, a card is turned over to reveal one of the many names of Jesus. We provide all of the materials, and this is packaged in a keepsake tin to preserve it for future years. You and your family will color the days to personalize it!

Please register to either join us for the event at St. Francis Xavier on Sunday, Nov. 22, when your children will have the opportunity to color the 24 images and enjoy other surprises, OR pick up a take-home kit from the church basement. Cost is $15 per calendar.

Register below by Monday, Nov. 16, so we can make sure we have enough kits for all.

“To holy people the very name of Jesus is a name to feed upon, a name to transport. His name can raise the dead and transfigure and beautify the living.”

Blessed John Henry Newman (1801-1890)
