💜 Advent

Advent is the first season of each new church year. It begins four Sundays before Christmas (no earlier than November 27, no later than December 3) and ends at Christmas Eve on December 24.

The season is a time to celebrate and anticipate the first and final comings of Christ.

The following table lists each day’s morning and evening psalms as well as the first, second, and gospel readings.

In Year One, the second reading is traditionally meant for the morning and the gospel for evening. In Year Two, the gospel is for the morning and the second reading for evening.

When there is more than one first, second, or gospel reading, then those specified for morning or evening are marked by the 🌞 and 🌛 emoji, respectively. Alternative readings are marked by the 🔀 emoji.

On smaller screens, you can scroll both horizontally and vertically to read across rows and columns.
