Are you a student interested in becoming a part of Advent Vespers?

submitted by

Be a part of one of the biggest celebrations at Augsburg! Each December, Augsburg students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends celebrate Advent at Central Lutheran Church in downtown Minneapolis with word and song. Students can join the Liturgical Team and carry bells, candle, banner or torch as part of the Gospel Processional (if not already in the choir or orchestra).

Advent Vespers is the first Friday and Saturday in December, with services on Friday at 5pm and 8pm, and Saturday at 2pm and 5pm. Practices are on Tuesday at 4:30 pm and Thursday at 6:45 pm. Transportation for the liturgical team is provided between Augsburg campus and Central Lutheran Church, as well as some meals and snacks. Many past participants have commented on how meaningful their participation in Advent Vespers is – that they feel a true sense of the Auggie spirit.

Be a part of this fun and moving experience! For more information, stop by Campus Ministries in Foss 104 or contact Janice Dames at
