Pastor’s Message 12/17/17

Third Sunday of Advent - (Gaudete Sunday)

            Two Sundays in the year, the Third Sunday of Advent and again on the Fourth Sunday of Lent a priest, a deacon or a bishop may wear “rose” colored vestments.  In each case the color helps set the tone of joyful anticipation.

During Advent joyous anticipation of the fast approaching Feast of Christmas;

During Lent anticipating the joy of Easter.

From the First Sunday of Advent to the 16th of December each year Advent calls us to reflect and prepare for Christ’s glorious second coming beginning December 17th each year through the 24th of December, the weekday Advent readings are intended to serve to prepare more directly for the Lord’s birth.
