Welcome to St. Agatha's as we celebrate the season of Advent you may have noticed an Advent wreath in the church.

The Advent wreath is an increasingly popular symbols of the beginning of the church year. It is a circular evergreen wreath with five candles four around the wreath and one in the centre.

The circle of the wreath reminds us of God himself, His eternity and endless mercy, which has no beginning or end. The green of the wreath speaks of the hope we have in God, the hope of newness, of renewal, of eternal life. Candles symbolise the light of God coming into the world throught trhe birth of His son. The foru outer candles represent the period of waiting during the four Sundays of Advent, which themselves symbolise the foru centuries of waiting betweenthe prophet Malachi and the birth of Christ.

Candle of Hope: The first purple candle is also known as the candle of Prophecy. It can represent the promise that forettold Christ's birth or the hope we have in christ.

Candle of Peace: The second purple candle is a reminder of the peace that God brings to us by forgiving our sins.

Candle of Joy: The third Advent candle is pink. I represents the joy the shepards received at hearing the news of Christ's birth, or the joy that God brings into our lives.

Candle of Love: The third purple candle represents God's love, demonstrated by His son's death to save us.

Cchrist candle: This white candle sits in the center of the wreath and is not lit until Christmas Eve. This candle represents the birth of Jesus Christ.
