You can add your donation to your regular Sunday offering (indicate "Christmas baskets" on the envelope), drop it off at the church office, or consider contributing on-line using our CanadaHelps portal.

About the season: Advent
When: Starts Dec. 1 in 2019 (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.
