School Principal, Donagh McKillop held a special assembly at our Wings School Cumbria this morning about ‘Advent’.
Advent is the season when Christians make spiritual preparation for the coming of Jesus Christ at Christmas. Celebrating with an Advent wreath is a meaningful custom in many Christian traditions.
The Advent wreath is a circular garland of evergreen branches representing eternity. On that wreath, four candles are typically arranged and during the season of Advent, one candle on the wreath is lit each Sunday as a part of the Advent services, these represent Hope, Love, Joy and Peace.
