  • Today's Readings

  • Beginning the Church's liturgical year, Advent (from, " ad-venire" in Latin or "to come to") is the season encompassing the four Sundays (and weekdays) leading up to the celebration of Christmas.

    The Advent season is a time of preparation that directs our hearts and minds to Christ’s second coming at the end of time and also to the anniversary of the Lord’s birth on Christmas. The final days of Advent, from December 17 to December 24, focus particularly on our preparation for the celebrations of the Nativity of our Lord (Christmas).

    Advent devotions including the Advent wreath to remind us of the meaning of the season ( http://www.usccb.org/prayer-and-worship/liturgical-year/advent/).
