Sunday forum, November 28 – What is Advent?

Why does the church observe the season of Advent?  What is its history?  Why do we consider it a season of expectation, penitence, hope, and yearning?  What are the season’s colors, themes, questions, and concerns, and how might we deepen our observance of it this year?  If you are curious about what exactly Advent is and what it means, join Michael Fitzpatrick for a forum this Sunday.  Bring your thoughts and questions, and let’s enter into the new season together.
