Third Sunday of Advent - Joy

The third Sunday of Advent symbolizes Joy. The Shepherd’s Candle reminding us of the Joy the world experienced at the coming birth of Jesus. We celebrate with joy that our hope in Christ is certain and prophecies about him are always fulfilled. As the angels proclaimed to the shepherds "do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is the Messiah, the Lord" (Luke 2: 10-11). This week let us choose to share that joy with others in doing one act of kindness for another.

Sunday, December 22, 2019
Fourth Sunday of Advent - Love

The fourth Sunday of Advent symbolizes Love. All four candles will be lit on our Advent wreath and we will have a full circle of light. The Lord brings the light of love to his people by sending His only Son to earth for our salvation. 

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." (John 3:16-17) May the love of Christ be with you and your family always.
