Lighting the Advent Wreath 
Advent begins the weekend of December 1st and 2nd. We want to  continue the tradition of having our parishioners light the Advent candle at Mass each week during Advent.  Advent wreath sign-up sheets are available in the Narthex for those individuals or families who would like to participate. We encourage you to sign up early for your Mass preference.
