Worship With Us During Advent!
Advent is the first season of the church year. During 2018, it begins on Sunday, December 2, and continues through Christmas Eve on December 24. The name is derived from a Latin word for “coming.” This 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.”
During Advent, most Episcopal churche and homes display an Advent wreath with four candles. We light the first candle during the first week of Advent, the second candle during the second week, and so on until all four candles are lit. Traditionally, three of the candles are purple and one is pink. We light the pink candle on the third Sunday of Advent, which is called Gaudete Sunday.
