Candle by candle: Advent at SJU!

Forget virtual tours and all that jazz, this is the SJU version ~ an Advent tour of St. John’s University office by office, department by department, Advent wreath by Advent wreath!  Every main office and department office has an Advent wreath on display throughout Advent, so once a week we do a walkabout of the whole university visiting all the main offices, lighting up the relevant candles, doing some readings, prayers, singing and greeting everyone.  This morning’s walkabout took over 3 hours to do the whole thing, calling in to at least 30 different places ~ fortunately we were a lively group of at least 12 of us, chaplain, church & chaplaincy staff, and a great bunch of students, it was fun!  It is also very meaningful to pray and witness in each place, and share the joy of Advent with everyone.  This is a small selection of places we went to, people we met and candles we lit!
