Advent marks the beginning of the liturgical year. While it expresses the deep longing of all humanity for God, it celebrates the three-fold coming of the Lord: remembering the events that surrounded the Lord’s coming long ago, celebrating his coming among us today, and looking forward to his final coming in glory.
Advent is a season of devout and joyful expectation. Its four Sundays highlight our desire and longing for peace, justice and unity.
In 2023, Advent begins on Sunday, December 3.
