  • Advent begins Sunday, December 2.It is the time of expectation and preparation for the birth of our Lord and is the beginning of the liturgical year.It is a time for us to focus on Christ coming in birth, history, and again in glory.We also treasure the time that our Lord comes to us in the Holy Eucharist.The word Advent means ‘coming” in Latin. Let us use this time of Advent to prepare our hearts and remember the real meaning of Christmas.Our First Week of Advent let us pray:All-powerful God, increase our strength of will for doing good that Christ may find an eager welcome at his coming and call us to his side in the kingdom of heaven, where he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit one God, forever and ever. Amen
