Advent – Prayer & Preparation

Advent – Prayer & Preparation

Set aside time to pray and prepare…

Advent is a season of waiting during the four weeks in the lead up to Christmas. During this season, we reflect on the contrasting themes of light in darkness, hope in despair, and joy in sorrow. And we look ahead in prayerful expectation to the coming of the light of Christ.

Here are some special opportunities to pray and prepare your heart, during this season of preparation:

Advent Carols & Procession by Candlelight
