Advent, celebrating the great mystery of Christmas ~ the One who was born; the One who died; the One we await.  In ancient tradition, Advent and Christmas were considered to be Easter in the wintertime.  Join us as we celebrate this great mystery of life and learn how life and death are a communion of love.
