Advent & Christmas


At Advent, we prepare our hearts for the coming of Jesus Christ, both his birth and his return as our Savior and his eternal kingdom. Through services of reflection and anticipation, our hearts are opened to welcome God into our lives.

For the season of Christmas we celebrate the fulfillment of God’s promise that a child would be born to a virgin in a lowly manger in Bethlehem and offer salvation to all. The festive season is filled with pageantry and joyful songs.

Rorate Caeli Mass

The “Rorate Mass” is a traditional Advent custom of offering Mass in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This candlelit Mass reminds us that Christ is the light who shines in the darkness. As we await the coming of the Christ-child, we also honor Our Lady who said “yes” to God’s plan of salvation.
