Preparing for Christmas: The Gospel of Matthew’s View

December 13 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Set time aside during the Advent season to prepare your heart for Jesus’ birth!

This Advent Evening of Reflection will explore the story of Jesus’ birth as presented in the Gospel of Matthew. Emphasis will be placed on the various characters in the story and their response to the birth of Jesus, as well as to how these characters can serve as a model for our own celebration of Advent and preparing for Christmas.

Our presenter is Arthur E. Zannoni, an award-winning freelance writer, scripture scholar, teacher, workshop leader, and consultant in the areas of biblical studies and Christian-Jewish relations. He is a husband, father, and member of St. Cecilia Parish in St. Paul, where he serves as a lector, adult educator, and member of the Liturgy Committee.

There is no fee for this event. Free will donations gratefully accepted.
