FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT

“Advent” means “to come.”  During the liturgical season of Advent, with reverence we share the longing of the Jewish people for the coming of the promised Messiah; with anticipated joy we prepare for our celebration of the birth of Jesus at Christmas; and with expectation we renew our hope in the coming of Christ in glory at the end time. We light candles in our Advent Wreath with the prayer of the early church: “Maranatha!” “Come, Lord Jesus.” 

 

During Advent spots or ads will appear on television and social media inviting Catholics to come home to church at Christmas. We all know of loved ones who no longer practice their faith. We realize the best way of inviting family, neighbors and friends is by gentle personal invitation and by warmly welcoming visitors at Eucharist. On behalf of the faith community at Annunciation, I extend an invitation to you to join us for worship during the Advent and Christmas seasons.
