The Season of Advent is a time of preparation to welcome Baby Jesus in the manger as well as the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, the King of Glory.  St Katharine Drexel Parish offer many resources for this hope-filled season.  We are in a season of preparations of ourselves, our homes and others. As Catholics often times we have Advent Wreaths in our homes and as a family read daily meditations and prayers. As Catholics we are invited to receive the Sacrament of Penance which is a spiritual cleansing and restoring us with sanctifying grace we received at Baptism. There are multiple family penance services throughout the deanery.

Finally as the Christ child arrives we celebrate with Holy Mass either on the Vigil of Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.
