Fifth Sunday in Advent Candle Lighting at St. Nicholas ROC, Bethlehem, PA. - 12/17/17

On Sunday, December 17, the fifth candle of the Advent Season was lit by Alex and Christopher Hodson, with the help of their mother, Carmen. The adult scriptural readings were read by their father, Moses Hodson. The fifth candle is purple to signify repentance, and reminds us of our need to repent before we can meet the coming Christ, “Repent, for the kingdom of God is at hand”.
