Advent is the season leading up to Christmas Day. It is a time set aside for the preparation of our hearts and minds to fully celebrate the birth of the Christ Child. Advent is marked by anticipation of the coming of Christ as the physical manifestation of God. Jesus is “God in the flesh” and the best expression of God’s love for all creation. He is Emmanuel, which means “God with us,” and that is the greatest gift we can receive.
The candles are a way of counting down to Christmas by focusing on a different theme each week. Just as there are countless lessons to learn from the birth of Christ, there are also numerous themes that can be applied to the Advent candles.
Let the lighting of the Advent Wreath become a family tradition that helps you celebrate the birth of Christ with anticipation, reverence, and joy!
In 2020 and 2021, St. Luke’s was able to give a special Advent Wreath Kit to each family in our Family of Faith. If you received a kit, we have refill candles available for you.
If you do not have a St. Luke’s Advent Wreath, you can still pick up the candles and use them to celebrate Christmas by walking through lighting of the Advent Candles with the Advent Wreath Guide. Candles are available for pickup on Sundays starting November 20.
