Advent
Beginning the Church’s liturgical year, Advent (from “ad-venire” or “to come to” in Latin) is the season encompassing the four Sundays leading up to the celebration of Christmas. The Advent season is a time of preparation that directs our hearts and minds to Christ’s second coming at the end of time, and to the anniversary of Our Lord’s birth on Christmas. Advent begins on Sunday, November 27, 2022.

The Revival kicks off on June 19, 2022 - the Feast of Corpus Christi.
