Advent Candle Lighting

God with us!

In the dark of the womb you waited. Bathed in the light of the star, you rest. Into a world sorely in need of your light, you are born.

When you knock on our door looking for room, may we welcome you. Like the herald of your birth, call us to share your good news first with those who are poor, excluded, and afraid.

All: The light shines in the darkness and the darkness cannot put it out.

The love of heaven has come to Earth. The call of Christ begins in a baby’s cry. Listen and respond.

All: We light the Christ candle. May it light the way.


Jingle Bells
Go Tell it on the Mountain
Joy to the World
Hark the Herald Angel Sings
God with Us
Who Would Imagine a King
Silent Night


May you be filled with the wonder of Mary, the obedience of Joseph, the joy of the angels, the eagerness of the shepherds, the determination of the magi, and the peace of the Christ child. Almighty God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit bless you now and forever. Amen.
