So what is Advent and what does it mean to your family? Advent comes from the Latin word meaning “coming”. Advent is a season of preparation for Jesus’ arrival. The purple color associated with Advent is the color of penance. Rose, the color of the Third Sunday, symbolizes joy and represents the happiness we will experience when Jesus comes again. So how do our children and we celebrate this season:
