Catholics in their twenties and thirties are invited to an Advent Evening of Reflection on Wednesday, December 2, 2015 at Holy Spirit Parish in Uniontown.

The theme is; "Advent as a Way of Life." The Advent season is a time of preparation that directs our hearts and minds to Christ's second coming at the end of time and also to the anniversary of the Lord's birth on Christmas. The evening will feature a dinner buffet (6:00 – 6:30 p.m.), Mass (7:00 p.m.) and a presentation by Anna Scally. There will also be time for small group discussions and silent reflection, concluding at 9:00 p.m.

Anna Scally is the President of Cornerstone Media Inc., which produces both print and audio materials to help parents, teachers, youth ministers, and pastors. They use the music that young people listen to everyday as a tool to spark dialogue about values and relationships.

Anna is a presenter, trainer, author and DJ. In her extensive travel, she has presented in every state and every province in Canada. Her work has taken her internationally to work with US military families and teens. Anna is proud to have given over 2500 public presentation at parishes, dioceses and every major religious education event in North America. She has worked at World Youth Days in Denver, Toronto, and Australia. She serves on the Board of Directors for the National Catholic Youth Foundation USA. She received the National Federation of Catholic Youth Ministry award for author/speaker/trainer of the year. Her book, "Keys to Happiness " is an inspiration for all ages.

Holy Spirit is located at 2952 Edison St., N.W., (Route 619), Uniontown, 44685. It is free to register; however, a free will offering will be taken for those able to donate. Suggested donation is $10.
