Refugee News

Crossroads is a partner in the West Kingston Refugee Partnership (WKRP). Our church is working with the Islamic Centre of Kingston and Edith Rankin, St. Andrew's-by-the-lake, Cataraqui, and Cooke's-Portsmouth United Churches to help bring at least two refugee families to Kingston and to raise funds and provide support as they establish themselves in our community.
June 2016 update: The first refugee family has now arrived in Kingston.

About the season: Advent
When: Starts Nov. 27 in 2016 (four Sundays before Christmas) and runs until Christmas Day.
Colour: Blue
Meaning: "Advent" means "coming" as we await the coming of Jesus (the Word made flesh) into the world at Christmas.
Symbols: Hope and waiting are the themes of this season. Each Sunday a different candle is lit, corresponding with hope, peace, joy and love. Sometimes purple (the colour of royalty, but also of asking forgiveness) is used for each candle; recently, blue (representing Mary, who waits with us for her baby's arrival) has become more common. The third Sunday uses a different colour - pink, representing joy. On Christmas or Christmas eve, the Christ candle (the white one in the middle) is lit.
