Liturgical Calendar

 

 


Liturgical Season: Advent

Sunday 2 December to Monday 24 December, 2018


Advent is a period of spiritual preparation in which many Christians make themselves ready for the coming, or birth of the Lord, Jesus Christ. The usual liturgical colour for Advent in the Chuch is violet (purple). This colour is often used for hangings around the church, the vestments of the clergy, and the altar.

 

Celebrating Advent typically involves a season of prayer, fasting, and repentance, followed by anticipation, hope, and joy.  Advent is the beginning of the liturgical year and commences on the fourth Sunday before Christmas (sometimes known as Advent Sunday), the Sunday nearest to St Andrew's Day (30 November), this year, that is Sunday 2 December. Practices associated with Advent include keeping an Advent calendar, lighting an Advent wreath, praying an Advent daily devotional.


Many Christians celebrate Advent not only by thanking God for Christ's first coming to Earth in the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas, but also for his presence among us today through the Holy Spirit, and in preparation and anticipation of his final coming in glory, at the end of time. The season offers the opportunity to share in the ancient longing for the coming of the Messiah, and to be alert for his Second Coming.
