Advent and Christmas at St. Mark's

Advent I

November 28, 2021 9:00am

Advent wreaths were originally part of folk traditions of Northern Europe. Wreaths of evergreens were decorated with candles to symbolize life and light during the dark months of winter, and they’ve been a part of the Christian church’s Advent traditions since the 8th century. The light of the candles reminds us that the light of Christ comes into the darkness of our lives to bring newness, life, and hope. The Advent wreath is a way of marking time in this Season of Advent as we gradually add more light each Sunday until Christ, our Light, comes at Christmas. We’ll create our own take- home versions of this traditional tool, which doubles as a beautiful decoration. 

We will gather in the Pecan St. Courtyard
