Public Events Held at Central
2019 Augsburg University Advent Vespers
Friday, December 6, at 5 p.m. & 8 p.m.
Saturday, December 7, at 2 p.m. & 5 p.m.
For four decades, Augsburg University has ushered in the Advent and Christmas seasons with Advent Vespers, a magnificent experience of music and liturgy, focusing on the theme of preparation and culminating in the joyful celebration of the Incarnation. Advent Vespers is set in downtown Minneapolis in the majestic sanctuary of Central Lutheran Church.
Suggested donations, received at the door, are $30 per person. Generous contributions are greatly needed to make these services possible.
Additional Opportunity – Donate medical supplies to the Augsburg Central Health Commons. For more than 27 years, Augsburg’s Department of Nursing has operated a free health-focused drop-in center at Central Lutheran Church for people experiencing homelessness or who are marginally housed. Basic supplies are needed to continue to serve more than 6,700 people each year. Consider bringing new adult socks and underwear, soap, toothpaste, diapers (size 5 or 6), Band-Aids or other simple items to promote health.
Can’t make it to Advent Vespers this year? Need to see it again? A live stream will be available for the 8 p.m. service on Friday, December 6 this year – Mark your calendars now and spread the word!
