Advent 2019 - Make Room for Jesus
OUR THEME FOR ADVENT THIS YEAR IS MAKE ROOM FOR JESUS. In our Church, Advent is a time of hope. We hope for all of the spiritual things that we have not yet realized. It is a time when we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus during the Christmas season that lasts from Christmas until the Baptism of the Lord. It is also a time when we are mindful of the fact that we must be vigilant and prepared for the second coming of Jesus Christ. It is a time of spiritual renewal.
Advent can become so filled with preparations and celebrations that we forget the spiritual aspects of Advent and Christmas. In the midst of preparing for and celebrating “The Holidays” we need to be very purposeful about making room for Jesus. St. Edith has a variety of activities and special worship opportunities during Advent. Please take a few minutes to look through the upcoming events and consider adding one or two (or more!) to your calendar this Advent. Make a commitment to attend Mass every weekend during Advent and the Christmas season - add Mass to your calendar if that is how to make it a priority in your family.
