Evening Prayer is an ancient tradition of praising God going back to the Jerusalem Temple. And in these anxious times, chanting the psalms is an uplifting and profoundly restful way to pray. 6.30 pm Monday to Saturday in the Upper Chapel, 7 pm Sundays. On Wednesdays there will be a short Advent meditation after the Reading given by different Dominican Sisters and Brothers. Vespers is also broadcast daily (along with Morning Prayer and Mass) on Radio Maria.
The Advent Fair in aid of the Jean Grove Trust, which supports Catholic community in Ethiopia (especially the war-torn Tigray region). Books, Christmas cards, cakes, mulled apple juice and mince pies. Donations of cakes welcome!
