My dear Franciscan
The Season of Advent – when we anticipate and prepare for the birth of Jesus – his advent – begins on Sunday. It is also the beginning of the church calendar – so it is our New Year. It is a time for fresh beginnings, a letting go of the past and looking with hope to the future suffused with God’s presence among us.
As preparation for the preparation please remember the Quiet Morning at the church tomorrow – 8:30 to 11:00.
There are many attachments to this email, several of them are suggestions as to how you might celebrate Advent in your homes. Thank you to Diana for having put them together.
I look forward to being with you on Sunday as we celebrate Advent together.
