Advent Season is Here.

Happy New Year! While a month yet remains in the civil year, the Church is celebrating the beginning of a new Liturgical year with the First Sunday of Advent on November 27, 2022


Advent — from the Latin ad venio, “to come” — is the liturgical season anticipating the Adventus Domini, the "coming of the Lord.”


While the days grow shorter and colder, we prepare for the “Sun of Justice” who comes to kindle our hearts with his light and his love.


The Eternal Word, who is outside of time, became Incarnate in time, thereby making all-time sacred.


In the season of Advent, we await the coming of Christ
