For more than three 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, soaring 65 feet high with large stained-glass windows.

Suggested Donations

Suggested donations, received at the door, are $30 per person. Generous contributions are greatly needed to make these services possible.

Additional Opportunity – Medical supplies will be donated to the Augsburg Central Nursing Center. For over 25 years, the Department of Nursing at Augsburg University has operated a free health focused drop-in center for people experiencing homelessness at Central Lutheran Church. Basic supplies are needed to continue to serve the over 6,700 people each year. Please consider bringing new adult socks & adult underwear, soap, toothpaste, diapers (size 5 or 6), Band-Aids or other simple alignments to promote healing.
