The myParish App is ready for Advent!

We added a special Advent Reflections button to our menu. These reflections offer spiritual encouragement each day of this holy season, as we await Christ’s coming.

There’s also a Blessing of an Advent Wreath prayer in the Prayers button on your app. This is a great way to bring Advent into your homes every day, not just on Sundays at Mass.

You may also notice some changes to the background in the coming weeks. We will have an Advent background beginning the week of November 23rd, and the Christmas background the week of December 21st, with all returning to our regular look the week of January 11th.
