Advent Magazine

The Advent ® is an annual (once per year) magazine published by the Cathedral Church of the Advent. The magazine has the shape and feel of a literary and arts journal, and its aim is to show rather than explain what our church is about through creative written pieces and artwork. Our target audiences are newcomers, parishioners, day school families, Birmingham area residents, and anyone else who is interested.

Each issue takes on a theme, tells human-interest stories, includes minimal parish information in front and back matter, and features artwork mostly from invited Birmingham area artists. We have very high standards of quality when it comes to both the writing and the artwork. The magazine aims to be a creative publication that people truly want to read and look forward to receiving each year.

If you would like a copy of the magazine, you may visit the Cathedral Church of the Advent on a Sunday or during weekday business hours to pick up a copy.

Please note that we only accept written and creative pieces by invitation from our editorial staff. For more information about the magazine, write to
