What is Advent?

Advent is the first season in the liturgical year. It is a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity.

This time is a preparation for the celebration of Christmas. It occurs during the four weeks prior to Christmas. Because of this, Advent begins on a different date each year.

This year we begin sharing our Advent Messages with St Anne and St Kateri School answering the question- What is Advent?
