Welcome to Saint Lawrence!
Many wonderful things happen here at Saint Lawrence - the Mass and Sacraments, Eucharistic Adoration, Saint Lawrence School, religious education and youth ministry, outreach to the poor, care for those in jail, visits to the homebound and those in nursing homes, community building, and so much that make Saint Lawrence a community of deep faith. Father Duquaine and I are excited to be a part of this work of Jesus Christ!

Beginning the Church's liturgical year, Advent (from, "ad-venire" in Latin or "to come to") is the season encompassing the four Sundays (and weekdays) leading up to the celebration of Christmas.
The Advent season is a time of preparation that directs our hearts and minds to Christ’s second coming at the end of time and also to the anniversary of the Lord’s birth on Christmas. The final days of Advent, from December 17 to December 24, focus particularly on our preparation for the celebrations of the Nativity of our Lord (Christmas).
Advent devotions including the Advent wreath, remind us of the meaning of the season. Our Advent calendar above can help you fully enter in to the season with daily activity and prayer suggestions to prepare you spiritually for the birth of Jesus Christ. More Advent resources are listed below.
