Advent Wreaths

Community Building

A Christmas tradition

It is a tradition at Holy Spirit to gather as a community to make Advent wreaths in preparation for the Advent season.

The Advent wreath is made up of evergreen plants, holly berries, pine cones, & candles. The evergreen plants reminds us of our eternal life with Christ. The holly berries represents the crown of thorns from the Passion of Jesus and his Precious Blood. The pine cones symbolize Christ’s Resurrection. The Advent wreath holds four candles, one for each week of Advent. During the first 2 weeks of Advent, the first two purple candles are lit. On the Third Sunday of Advent (Gaudete Sunday), we light the rose-colored candle, signifying joy and to celebrate that our waiting for the birth of Jesus is almost over. Then on the fourth Sunday of Advent, the final purple candle is lit to mark the final week of prayer and penance.
