Advent Today


   Advent means ‘the coming’ of something.


   Advent is a period lasting FOUR Sundays (not weeks!) preparing for the 

   celebration of Jesus’ birth.


   The first Sunday of Advent also marks the beginning of the Christian Church's



   Because the celebration is such an important event, Christians want to make  

   themselves completely ready.


Why is the Advent Wreath so special to Christians?

  • The circle of the wreath reminds Christians of God, His eternity and endless mercy, which has no beginning or end.


  • The green of the wreath speaks of the hope that Christians have in God, the hope of newness, of renewal, of eternal life.


Why have four candles on the Advent Wreath?

  • The four outer candles represent the period of waiting during the four Sundays of Advent
  • The green of the wreath speaks of the hope that Christians have in God, the hope of newness, of renewal, of eternal life.


The four traditional advent themes

  • The Candle of HOPE
  • The Candle of PEACE
  • The Candle of LOVE
  • The Candle of JOY
  • A fifth candle is  lit in the middle to celebrate the birth of Jesus
