2. Special Character - Week 7, Term 4 2018


Week 7: November 26 - 30
This Sunday 2nd December will be the first Sunday of Advent. We will see the colours in the Church from mainly Green to Violet or Purple. Violet or Purple is the colour of Advent and Lent.

We can think of the colour of Advent to be a more of a rose-purple, like the sky just before sunrise. This is the time of year when the Church waits in joyful hope to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the light of the world.

We light  the first candle on the Advent Wreath that symbolises hope.

Prayer For The Advent Wreath

Lord, our God, we praise You for Your Son, Jesus Christ, for He is Emmanuel, 
the Hope of all people.
He is the Wisdom that teaches and guides us.
He is the Saviour of us all.
O Lord,
let your blessing come upon us as we light the first (purple) candle of this wreath.
May the wreath and its light be a sign of Christ's promise of salvation.
May He come quickly and not delay.
We ask this in His holy name. Amen.


 

God Bless 
Nicola Winders
