Advent Vespers

For more than 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.


The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how we celebrate Advent Vespers this year. We invite you to join us for a series of devotional and worship events online throughout the week—led by alumni, Board of Regents members, faculty, and students—culminating on Friday, December 4 at 7 p.m. with the virtual 41st Annual Advent Vespers.

Virtual Devotions

Beginning on the first day of Advent, join us for brief daily devotions led by alumni, Board of Regents members, faculty, and students. These devotionals will be posted on the Auggie Connections Facebook Group.

Simply join the group prior to the devotional date, and you’ll get day-of notifications when each event goes live!
