The New Year in the Church begins on Sunday, November 27, 2022 with the season of Advent - a time to help us prepare for Christmas - the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ.  Advent continues for four weeks, until the Sunday before Christmas.  It is a season of anticipation - a time of prayer and reflection - followed by hope and joy. 

Please find below some Advent resources to help you prepare.
