What is Advent? A Season of Anticipation!

The season of Advent is the four weeks leading up to Christmas.  On each of these four weeks we reflect on an aspect of waiting for the arrival of Jesus:  Hope, Peace, Joy and Love.  On Christmas Eve we light the Christ candle and celebrate his life.  This year, the Sunday of Love and Christmas Eve fall on the same day! 

Our theme for Advent 2017 is “Making Space for… Hope… Peace… Joy… Love… Christ”.
