I along with the Archdeacon of the Diocese, Dr. Gideon Uzomechina, pray that you have a blessed First Sunday in Advent — the first day of the new liturgical year.
The season of Advent is a way to mark time as we prepare for Christmas.
Focus on the passages from the Sunday readings in Isaiah to be reminded of God’s promise to come — He is God who comes to gather us to Himself and make a way forward. And to be reminded that God has indeed come. We have promises to remember before Him — that give shape and inspire hope for the present and our future in uncertain times.
Faithfully, in Christ,
The Right Reverend Dr. Jack Lumanog
Bishop, The Anglican Diocese of St. Ignatius Loyola
