The Journey: A Season of Reflections Daily Devotion Guide
This year at Mount Seymour, Advent will take us on a journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem as we walk through the events that led to Jesus’ birth.

We will have a limited number of booklets available to those who wish to delve more deeply into this series with daily prayer and reflection. Cost is $10.00 payable by cash or cheque in the office. Sign up on the Action Table. Books will be available December 1st.
