Liturgical Season

Advent is the first season of the church year, beginning with the fourth Sunday before Christmas and continuing through the day before Christmas. The name is derived from “adventus”, the Latin word for “coming.”
The season is a time of preparation and expectation for the coming celebration of our Lord’s nativity, and for the final coming of Christ “in power and glory.”
Advent is meant to be a time of reflection and a time set aside to renew our connection to Christ.

The Advent Wreath, seen at the front of the Nave during the Advent season, is a circle of greenery, marked by four candles that represent the four Sundays of the season of Advent. An additional candle is lit as each new Sunday is celebrated in Advent. Our Advent wreath includes a white candle in the center known as the “Christ Candle,” which is lit on Christmas Eve.
