Advent Candle Lighting

Advent Candle Lighting

Join with Christians around the world in the prayerful ritual of lighting the Advent wreath.

Prayer

A Child came for all of us and because of that Child
We believe that love is stronger than fear,
Peace more enduring than hate

For this peace we dare to hope.
