Faithful: A Journey to Christmas
Celebrate the Season
Advent is a time of anticipation as we journey through the weeks leading up to Christmas, a time to focus our hearts and minds and to remember the stories of our faith. We invite you to join us on this journey as we prepare to celebrate God’s wonderful gift of love to the world.
