Advent is the time of preparing our hearts for the coming of Christ during the four Sundays before Christmas.

The four traditional advent themes for the four advent Sundays are:

  • God’s people -The Candle of Hope. Hope is like a light shining in a dark place. …
  • The old testament prophets – The Candle of Peace. …
  • John the Baptist – The Candle of Love. …
  • Mary the mother of Jesus – The Candle of Joy.
