The season of Advent, which comes from the Latin word adventus meaning “coming” or “visit," begins four Sundays before Christmas and ends on Christmas Eve. During Advent, we prepare for, and anticipate, the coming of Christ. Whether you are inviting the community to Christmas worship or promoting special events, this collection of information, outreach and liturgical resources will help make for a more meaningful Advent and Christmas season.
