1st Sunday of Advent

Excitement is growing in the communities where the Moravian holiday, Advent, is celebrated.

By Saturday, most Moravian communities will have their Advent trees erected and decorated for the occasion.

Children will hang their empty stockings in anticipation of the visiting Nalujuks.

The Moravian Church in Labrador celebrates the first Sunday of Advent as a preparation for the coming of the Christ child.

Two church services are usually held on Advent.

The first is the Advent Sunday address at 10am.

The Inuktitut Liturgy takes place at 5pm with the Hosanna Anthem.

There are four Sundays of Advent before Christmas Eve.

To mark this occasion some of the Moravian churches light a candle for each Sunday.

This year, the first Sunday of Advent falls on November 28.

OKalaKatiget radio will also be celebrating the occasion.

We will be airing air Brass Band music on Sunday morning starting at 8am and will play Advent Sunday requests on our afternoon show.

Have a safe and happy Advent everyone.
