Since the fourth century, the Church has celebrated the season of Advent (which means "coming" or "arrival") starting on the fourth Sunday before Christmas day. The celebration of Advent helps us focus our attention on the once anticipated birth of Jesus Christ as well as His promised return. In a season typically marked with busyness and distraction, we can easily miss the point of this season of celebration. Join us as we look back as well as lean forward into the light of Jesus Christ. Light: Advent 2017. December 3rd - 24th.
