FIRST SUNDAY IN ADVENT

Sunday, December 2
First Sunday in Advent 2015

The *official* first Sunday of Advent begins the Christian Church's new calendar year.  Happy New Year!  This year we return to Year C, using the Gospel of Luke for most Sundays. 

The traditional color of Advent is purple; however, the more contemporary color is blue as a tribute to the role of the Blessed Mother, Mary.  Join us in the Sundays of Advent as we wait in expectancy for the Christ-child once again.
