The diocesan theme for Advent 2020 is Waiting in Joyful Hope
The season of Advent reminds us that God comes to us. During the first two weeks of Advent we prepare ourselves for when Christ will come again in glory at the end of time. During the second two weeks of Advent we prepare to celebrate when he came at Christmas. At the same time, we become more aware of the fact that God comes to us now. In this way, our very lives are “an Advent, a time of waiting, listening and hoping, a time of openness to the unimaginable gift of God” (Sister Maria Boulding, The Coming of God). Throughout Advent, throughout our lives, we wait in joyful hope for the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
