We have been learning about the liturgical calendar. Can your child point out Advent?
Advent is a time of hope and anticipation. We are waiting for the birth of Christ!
We changed our prayer table cloth from green, when it was Ordinary Time, to purple for Advent. Can you see our wreath? We light one candle for each of the four Sundays in Advent. This week we lit the first candle. As we light more candles each week, our world becomes brighter, symbolizing our growing anticipation of Jesus, who is the light of our world.
At mass, the priest now wears purple vestments, the altar has a purple table cloth, and the advent wreath is displayed.
Each morning, we will have a little Advent celebration during our daily Connection Time.
Throughout Advent we reflect on the birth of Christ by adding to our Advent lapbook! These will come home prior to Christmas break.
As we journey towards Christmas, may we prepare our hearts with kindness as we joyfully wait for the coming of Jesus!
