Advent is the special time leading up to Christmas. In Latin, Advent means “coming”. This is a peaceful time that allows us to reflect and pray as we wait for the coming of Jesus. On the Advent wreath there are four candles, three purple and one pink, symbolizing hope, love, joy and peace.  

Be patient, and be ready; the coming of the Lord is near. James 5:7-10
