True Love

Love is the significance of the fourth Sunday of Advent. Love is an action, not something only one feels. We can share this love with others like God when He sent Jesus among us. We can share our love even with people we don’t know, with everyone.

  • Light up the candle
  • Think about a pleasant action you received. How did you feel? …

Let There Be Peace

The second candle of Advent represents peace. While lightening up the candle let us think about ways how we can be channels of peace everywhere we are.

  • Light up the second candle in the wreath

Ready For Advent ?

Do you enjoy unpacking the decorations and transforming the home for Christmas?  Advent season is a time of preparation for the birth of Jesus. During the four weeks in Church, we will see a wreath with 4 coloured candles: 3 purple candles represent hope, love, and peace, while one pink represents joy. Every week we switch on a candle until we switch on a white one in the middle on Christmas day, which means the light Jesus brought to the world with His birth… Read more »

All Brothers and Sisters

How many people did you meet yesterday and today? Do you remember? All of us make contact with different people in our life. There are those persons with whom we relate continually, there are those whom we do not know, and there are also those persons whom we do not really enjoy their presence. God created us to be together. In our lives, we need to connect with others, to have a talk, to play, to pray, to go for a walk, and even to eat together… Read more »

  • Light up the pink candle
  • Draw a balloon or the balloon template and attach a ribbon to it. On the ribbon write names of people and places that make you happy…
