Advent Penitential Services

By B.C. Catholic Staff

Penitents process through the streets of Veurne, Belgium in 2007 on the feast of St. Martha. The Archdiocese of Vancouver has released dates for its Advent penitential services. Locations are separated into the archdiocese's six geographical deaneries.
