ADVENT SEASON

Join us as we begin our celebration of the Advent Season. The word ‘Advent’ is from the Latin ‘Adventus,’ which means ‘coming.’ Advent is the beginning of a new liturgical year and encompasses the span of time from the fourth Sunday before Christmas, until the Birth of Our Lord is celebrated.

The season also celebrates Christ’s anticipated coming again in the fullness of time to rule triumphantly over life in heaven and earth.

If Christ is to come more fully into our lives this Christmas, we should take time to be aware that in the very midst of our busy preparations for the celebration of Christ’s birth, we should slow down, be still and through reflection and prayer make our hearts a place where a blessing of Peace and Love will live.

HOPE ….    December 3

Romans 8:24-25   For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently
