The season of buying Christmas presents for family, friends, and co-workers is upon us and wonderfully coincides with the Church’s Advent season.

Advent is a season of preparation to meet the newborn Savior and to rejoice and acclaim Christ crucified and risen. Traditionally, Advent incorporates spiritual practices that include Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving (helping those in need).

This Advent & Christmas season, rather than rushing around buying stuff, prayerfully consider alternative gift options, fast from self-indulgence and spending money, and re-direct your choices to support those most in need.

Give the gift of hope!
