Advent Crown

The Advent Crown

is circular, symbolizing God's infinite love and made of evergreen leaves to represent the hope of eternal life brought by Jesus Christ.

Candles depict the four weeks of Advent and the light of God coming into the world through the birth of Jesus Christ.

Individual candles portray -

  • HOPE (Week 1)
    • PEACE (Week 2)
      • JOY (Week 3 - Rose)
        • LOVE (Week 4)

A white candle in the centre, known as the "Christ Candle" symbolizes the arrival of Christmastide and is lit on Christmas Day.
