Advent Vespers


Clinton — The Sisters of St. Francis are hosting Advent Vespers, “Gifts of the Season,” Dec. 11 and 18, at 6 p.m. at The Canticle, 841 13th Ave. N., Clinton.
Marguerite Bloch, a Sojourner with the Sisters of St. Francis, will provide the reflection Dec. 11. Bloch is planning to speak about her years as principal in Oak Park, Ill., at a time when the suburban village had decided to take a proactive approach to a sudden increase in a very diverse population.
