Advent & Christmas

You are invited to join us as we celebrate Advent & Christmas. Advent begins this year on November 29 and concludes on December 24. The season of Christmas is twelve days long, beginning on December 25 and ending on the Twelfth Night - January 5. You can keep time through the Christian Year with a copy of the Christian Seasons Calendar.

Advent
In Advent we wait expectantly, with Mary, to celebrate the coming of the Christ child.

At 10:30 am on each of the four Sundays in Advent - November 29, December 6, 13 & 20 - we light Advent candles, we sing Advent songs, we place the figures in our Christmas creche and we celebrate the sacrament of the Eucharist. We keep the tradition of decorating a Jesse Tree with ornaments that tell the story of the Bible from creation to the birth of Jesus. Households are invited to decorate a Jesse Tree at home each day during Advent. For more information about the Jesse Tree visit Christian Seasons.
