Advent is a time of hopeful waiting. It is a season to anticipate the promise of the Holy One coming to dwell with us. Join the Franciscan Spirituality Center, Viterbo University Campus Ministry, Tom Roberts and Malinda Gerke, FSPA, for an evening of Taize-style prayer, paired with the beautiful sounds of Tibetan singing bowls and harp music. This is a unique opportunity to reflect on your spiritual journey in a gathered community that shares varied faith traditions.
You are invited to come to San Damiano Chapel an hour before the program to view a variety of Nativity scenes that will be on display. If you are not able to arrive early, there will be another half-hour opportunity after the program.
This program is part of the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration’s Celebrating Christmas at Greccio series of events in conjunction with the Franciscan Spirituality Center, Viterbo University and Mayo Clinic Health System. Learn more at
