Monthly Prayer Group - Chemin Neuf Community: Second Tuesday of the month, 7:00-8:15 at the St. Charles Retreat Centre, 323 St. Charles.  Next one is Tuesday, December 13.  We will pray with the “O Antiphons.”  These brief but potent prayers have been used by the Church during Advent for centuries and are the basis of the song, “O Come, O Come Emmanuel.”  We will pray these prayers for ourselves and the world.  All are welcome (no need to register).
