Objective:  "Prepare the way for the Lord. Get ready. The Lord is coming." That's the message of Advent. 

Advent is a special time of grace, and in this course, students will learn all about the importance of this great season. During Advent, the Church calls us to clean our rooms, clean the house within, and sets aside special times for increased prayer and worship. Why do we do this? So we'll be ready for his coming, by having the clarity of living faith so we can recognize Him.

God is inviting you to enter into a life more fully with Him. Will you respond?
