What Is Advent?

Advent is two fold-a time of preparation for the coming or arrival of Christmas, celebrating the birth of the Son of God. The word comes from the Latin term used in a secular context to denote the coming or arrival of the emperor. The four weeks of Advent inaugurates the entire liturgical year. Advent is a time of devout and joyful expectation, a time to reflect on the gift of the son of God.

What Is An Advent Wreath?

The Advent Wreath is part of our long standing Catholic tradition. The lighting of the four candles during the four weeks of Advent reminds us of the coming of the great feast of Christmas. The rose candle is lit on the third Sunday, or Gaudete Sunday, when the priest also wears rose vestments at Mass. Gaudete Sunday is a Sunday of rejoicing, because the faithful have arrived at the midpoint of Advent, when their preparation is now half over and they are close to Christmas.
