advent and christmas 2020

Christmas 2020 offers us new opportunities to experience the coming of the Light into the world in fresh ways. We can take comfort in traditions that remain the same no matter what, and find new expressions of our faith in Christ. 

The message of Christmas is "Emmanuel! God is with us!"

No matter where we are.
