There are four Sundays in Advent, and this year we have four full weeks of Advent to prepare for Christmas. The readings for the Liturgical Year are taken from year A in the three year cycle. It is through the daily readings of Scripture that the Church assists us in entering more fully into the Spirit of Advent.
If you are interested in making and baking an Advent wreath with your children/students, you will find a recipe with instructions on my Nov. 20, 2009 post from last year. Please check this blog regularly as I will be updating it throughout Advent with new recipes and activities for the home and classroom.
