Calling Advent “a time to listen, a time to reflect,” Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori urges in her Advent Message 2011 to “rest, wait, yearn” for the coming celebration of the birth of the Savior.

The Presiding Bishop’s video Advent message, taped at General Theological Seminary in New York City park, is available here:

In the liturgical calendar, Advent is the season leading up to Christmas. The first Sunday of Advent is November 27.

The Presiding Bishop’s video Advent message also will be posted on YouTube and Facebook.

The Episcopal Church welcomes all who worship Jesus Christ in 109 dioceses and three regional areas in 16 nations.  The Episcopal Church is a member province of the worldwide Anglican Communion.
