Happy New Year! This 1st Sunday of Advent marks the beginning of Year C in our three-year Lectionary cycle.

During this season, the Old Testament readings will provide the prophetic basis leading up to the coming of the Messiah (Anointed One) at the Feast of the Incarnation (Christmas). Our Gospel readings from Luke will lead us to the Manger in Bethlehem.

On this first Sunday of Advent, we will light the first (blue) candle on our Advent Wreath.
