Every Sunday of Advent – November 27th, as well as December 4th, 11th, and 18th – you can join the Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls to celebrate Advent liturgies at 9:30 a.m. at the Sacred Heart Chapel. The Sacred Heart Chapel was built in 1943. A Romanesque influence can be seen in its pillars, rounded arches and the symbolism of the stained glass windows. The architecture—with its miniature angels, tower and raftered ceiling—was influenced by the style of mission chapels erected by a pioneer Franciscan priest in Mexico and California. The liturgy will also be broadcast live on YouTube.
