Advent Studies

In Advent we prepare for the coming of God – his Incarnation – to us in the person of Jesus Christ. Advent is the four weeks before Christmas, roughly from the end of November to Christmas Eve. Advent is a season of expectation, both joyful and penitent, as we prepare to receive God into our hearts.
