The Advent is the period before Christmas that lasts anywhere from 21- 28 days, and includes four Sundays. It is a time of preparation for the coming of the baby Jesus. Each Sunday of Advent churches around the world prepare for Christmas by speaking about four very important elements of Advent (peace, hope, love and joy), and their meaning to Christians.
Our reason for this season is the birth of baby Jesus!
Come prepare for this holy season!
