Sunday, 6 December 2020 CCW-ADW's Virtual Tea - Advent of Joy
Come join CCW-ADW for the Advent of Joy! We hope to see you Sunday, Dec. 6 at 3 p.m. for our monthly virtual tea.
Truly this is the time for warm fellowship and reflection as we seek the loving guidance of Mary, our Blessed Mother for the days ahead. For our added enjoyment, we will have the music of Gretchen Erlichman, a PhD student at the Catholic University of America. Gretchen has discerned a vocation as a Domincan contemplative nun. The only thing holding her back from entering Our Lady of Grace monastery in Connecticut is -- paying off her student debt!

Email your RSVP for the tea and piano performance to by December 4 to receive the ZOOM link for our gathering. We look forward to seeing you.
