Rossland Sacred Heart Catholic Church and St. Andrew’s United Church celebrate coming of Christ

The Catholic Women’s League of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Rossland hosted its 13th annual Advent Music Celebration on Thursday.



The Catholic Women’s League of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Rossland hosted its 13th annual Advent Music Celebration on Thursday. Advent marks the beginning of the liturgical calendar, and is both a time to remember Christ’s first coming and a time to prepare for his second coming.

Each year, the Sacred Heart Catholic Church celebrates with prayer and music, and invites members of Rossland’s St. Andrew’s United Church to join them. This year St. Andrew’s choir was unable to perform, but many members of the United Church still participated.

Every year during the Advent Musical Celebration a silver collection is taken and the money is given to a local charity. This the collection raised $480 for the Trail and District Hospice Palliative Care Society.
