Advent 2019

Birth of the Messiah

Come and join us for a journey into the early life of the Master. With the help of the movie, Jesus of Nazareth, by Franco Zeffirelli and drawing from Raymond E. Brown’s scholarly work, The Birth of the Messiah, we will study the annunciation, the visitation, the nativity, the visit of the Magi, the slaughter of the innocents and the presentation of Jesus in the Temple. Dedicate ninety minutes each week for two weeks and be better prepared to celebrate the birth of the Savior.

Presenter: Fr. Britto M. Berchmans
Place: Kinane Center
