Advent Wreath

Advent is a season of the church year during which we prepare our hearts for Christ’s coming. Advent marks the beginning of the church year. It is a season of four weeks including four Sundays which begins on the fourth Sunday prior to Christmas Day, or the Sunday which falls closest to November 30, and lasts through Christmas Eve, or December 24.

Advent derives from the Latin adventus, which means “coming.” The season proclaims the coming of the Christ–whose birth we prepare to celebrate once again, who comes continually in Word and Spirit, and whose return in final victory we anticipate. Each year Advent calls the community of faith to prepare for these comings.

Each Sunday of Advent has its distinctive theme:
  • Christ’s coming in final victory (First Sunday);
  • John the Baptist (Second and Third Sundays); and
  • The events immediately preceding the birth of Jesus Christ (Fourth Sunday).
One of the primary symbols of the season has become the Advent Wreath. The wreath itself is a symbol of life without end. The lighting of a candle each week marks our journey through the four weeks of Advent. Five candles are placed on the wreath:
  • First Sunday in Advent – First candle is purple and represents Expectation/Love;
  • Second Sunday in Advent – Second candle is purple and represents Hope;
  • Third Sunday in Advent – Third candle is pink or rose and represents Joy;
  • Fourth Sunday in Advent – Fourth candle is purple and represents Purity/Peace;
  • Christmas Eve or Christmas Day – the center Christ Candle is white and represents Jesus as the “Light of the world,” or the Epiphany, God on Earth.
