Advent Party

Advent is the season of preparation for Christmas, beginning in late November or early December depending on the year and continuing until December 24, Christmas Eve. As a season of preparation, it is also a season of reflection and penance in the Catholic tradtion. As such, it is not a season of celebration per se, but we are mindful that the liturgical year is something that we encounter together as a community of the faithful, and so we consider it fitting to come together and share food and fellowship as we look forward to Christmas and close out the Fall academic semester.
