Fifth Advent Candle Lighting at St. Nicholas - 12/15/19

On Sunday, December 15, the fifth candle of the Advent Season was lit by Nicholas Bzik with the help of his Mom, Jennifer.  The student verse and scriptural reading were both read by Aurora Mascari, under the guidance of her Mom, Larissa. Great job Aurora!

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”.

After the lighting, the entire congregation sung, “O Come, O Come Emmanuel”.
