                      Sacred Heart Faith Formation 

    During the month of December, we continue our Advent journey to Christmas! 

    Sunday, December 4th marks the second Sunday of Advent.  On this day, we light two violet candles on our Advent wreath as we continue to prepare for the Lord’s coming!

    Sunday, December 11th is the third Sunday of Advent and is known as Gaudete Sunday.  This is the halfway point to Christmas and we light two violet and one rose candle on our Advent wreaths!  We rejoice on this Sunday as the Lord is near!

    Sunday, December 18th is the fourth Sunday of Advent.  On this day we light all three violet candles and the rose candle on our Advent wreaths as we pray that the Lord’s light will enter all of our hearts!

    Sunday, December 25th “And the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us, and we saw his glory.” —John 1:14
