The “O” Antiphons are some of the richest treasures of the Advent season. Again this Advent we will be praying the “O” Antiphons in the Motherhouse Chapel from 4-4:30 p.m. This will be the afternoon prayer to end our days and will include a reflection on each of the antiphons. We hope you will join us as we once again prepare ourselves for the coming of Jesus.
