Advent begins a new Liturgical or Church Year and mainly falls during the month of December. Advent is a season of spiritual preperation, marked by eager longing for the COming of the Savior through Grace at Christmas, and His Second and final Coming. The season takes it's name from the Latin word, "adventus", which means "coming".

"Answering Godís urgent call. Together.
God calls everyone. Me? Yes. You.
Young, old. Rich, poor. Gay, straight. Single, married. City dweller, suburbanite. No matter your race, ethnicity or language. Godís call is for everyone. You are Godís hands and feet, Godís heart and voice in the world. The Episcopal Church helps us, whoever we are, as we are, to hear Godís call for each of us and to answer it in our daily lives, through prayer, through service to others, through our generosity and through all the ways we show our love for Godís world and Godís people."
