Season of Advent

Today is the 1st Sunday of the season of Advent.

Advent in Latin means 'coming' and in the Greek 'parousia' which means "Second Coming". Today we remember the First Coming of Christ and look forward to His Second Coming.

The four candles symbolise the 4 Sundays to Christmas. The purple represent 'anticipation or waiting.' The pink represent joy and the green wreath represent life.
