Walking With The Father: Advent and 1st Communion enrollment

December 2, 2018

Advent and 1st Communion enrollment

  • Advent is a time of waiting and of preparation. Everything worth while in life is worth waiting and preparing for. Athletes go through this when they train hard during a long season, and when they prepare for the final competition. For us, we are here today to support the children as they prepare for their 1st Communion. We are also preparing for the birth of Jesus at Christmas. We are ready and willing to enter this season of Advent, and of waiting. Even today at Mass, we are preparing and waiting to receive Jesus in the Eucharist. Father Matthew asks us to spend some time during Advent preparing by reading scripture. He recommends reading Advent reflections, and he invites parishoners to make a gift to Jesus.
