Dear MCS Community,
Advent begins this weekend on December 3. It is the season of expectation of the Christ. It is four weeks long or slightly less, the first two focusing on Jesus' final coming as Lord and judge. The final eight days anticipate his coming in history (Christ-mas). Since the tenth century, the first Sunday of Advent has marked the beginning of the Church year in the West.
Originally, Jesus' birth was celebrated as part of the feast of Epiphany. Around the year 330, the Church in Rome assigned the celebration of Christmas to December 25. There were some Church leaders and writers who claimed this date was Christ's actual birth date, although there was never an official reason given for the ecclesiastical decision. Church scholars contend that the date was chosen to counteract the Roman feast of the "Birthday of the Sun" which took place on December 25. The tradition of a midnight Mass on Christmas originated in the pious belief that Christ was born at that hour.
Check out the dates on the calendar, we have a lot going on! Come join us whenever you can during Advent.
Mr. Scott Hulshoff
