Advent I

The Four Week Season of Advent Begins Today: Today is the First Sunday of Advent. We move into Year “C” of the Lectionary, focusing the year on the Gospel of Luke. Also, we move to Year One of the Daily Office. Again this year, we are invited to participate in the Sunday Advent Program, at Miller’s Farmstead Begins Today, coordinated by Mary Reid. This year, St. Andrew’s will be the host the following Sundays: November 28th.; December 5th; December 19th. This Advent program begins at 12:15 p.m. As the host for the Advent program, we are responsible for the Music/Message, and little parting gifts.

St. Huberts Fellowship Wild Game Dinner at St. Andrew’s: The Maryland/Pennsylvania/West Virginia; Deer Rifle Seasons are in full swing. With that in mind; the St. Huberts Fellowship Wild Game Dinner will be on Saturday, January 22, 2022 at St. Andrew’s. Hunters are asked to donate some of their bounty to this event. Chef Marcel Wenker likes to have the wild game at least 3 weeks prior to the dinner in order to begin marinating the meat. More will be said about this event as the date approaches, but we are looking at 6:00 p.m. for the dinner.
