The Lay Academy presents


“Our Bishops on Advent”


Expectation. Preparation. Anticipation. Hope. Longing. And then, Good News!

We have all gone through the process of waiting for something yearned for. For some, the waiting can be like an eternity.

Today, as is in the past, there is the hunger for good news. And finally it arrives – Christ is Coming!


Advent – the season where the we prepare not just for celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, but also for Christ’s second coming. We remember how our Lord comes to us in our daily lives.

Join Bishop Sid Haugen of the SK Synod, Bishop Larry Kochendorfer of the ABT Synod, Bishop Elaine Sauer of the MNO Synod, and Bishop Greg Mohr of the BC Synod as they discuss the Advent texts and help us to ‘get ready and remember’.

Our four Bishops of the Western Synod will be conversing together with us and one another on the Readings of Advent.

Mark your calendars for November 18th and 25th and save the dates! It will be a time of illuminating insights, learnings, dialogue and more. Bring your Bible and rediscover “The Arrival of Advent” again.

The sessions will run from: 8:30 am to 11:00 am BC/Yukon Time


Registration fees are $27 per session or $52 for the 2 dates.

Further information on Registration and Sites of attendance can be found on the Lay Academy website.
