Light a candle for the Messiah.
On the First Sunday of Advent, we gathered to make Advent wreaths for our homes. We began by hearing the Godly Play Story for the season of Advent, and then we constructed our wreaths. Each week we lit a different candle as we prepared for the coming of the Christ Child at Christmas. At High Mass Father Lillie presented the children with Advent Calendars, and after the service, the St. Mark's Choir hosted an Advent Party for all ages.
