The Mystery of Advent

The season of advent holds the beautiful mystery of Emmanuel, God with us. Over the coming weeks, we will explore the mystery of Advent and hope you will join us as we ponder God’s gift of new life and joy. We are grateful for how the Spirit of God unites us even when we are apart. We know this will especially remain true as we all welcome the Christ child into the world and celebrate Christmas in our homes.
