SGTG December Newsletter

Wishing you the blessings of His peace this Christmas!

Advent

Advent is a time for preparation as we get ready for the birth of Jesus. It is also a time of reflection and prayer. As you get ready for Christmas, remember to not lose sight of the real reason for the season.


Advent wreaths are circular representing God's infinite love and are usually made of evergreen leaves which "represent the hope of eternal life brought by Jesus Christ." The four Sundays before Christmas are recognized by the four virtues. The candles on the Advent wreath symbolize hope, love, joy, and peace. The candles are lit in that order.
