Light the Advent candle, now the waiting has begun.

Our liturgical year is coming to an end. As we prepare to enter the season of Advent, we take time to pause, to reflect and to ground ourselves on Jesus.

The Advent wreath is one way to help you and your family get started in contemplating the meaning of Advent. The use of the wreath and candles during Advent are a longstanding Catholic tradition that was originally adopted by Christians in the Middle Ages as part of their spiritual preparation for Christmas.

We invite you to keep this beautiful Advent tradition in your home. Here is a simple and easy to follow guide by Holy Family Kajang’s floral ministry to make your own Advent wreath.
