Four Weeks of Advent Wreath

The Advent season begins the fourth Sunday before Christmas and runs through Christmas Eve. Each day in Advent, often at the main meal, the candles are lit: one candle the first week, two the second, three the third (pink), and all four during the last week, through Christmas Eve. Each lighting is accompanied by a blessing, a scriptural reading, and the singing of a verse from “O come, O come, Emmanuel”. A different member of the family, usually starting with the father, leads the ceremony and lights the candles each evening.

The Four Weeks of Advent:

  • The 1st Sunday Symbolizes Hope with the Prophet’s Candle ~ Jesus is coming
  • The 2nd Sunday Symbolizes Faith with the Bethlehem Candle ~ Mary & Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem
  • The 3rd Sunday Symbolizes Joy with the Shepherd’s Candle ~ Joy at the coming birth of JESUS
  • The 4th Sunday Symbolizes Peace with the Angel’s Candle ~ The Message of the Angels: “Peace on Earth, Good Will Toward Men”
