At Holy Spirit Verona we share in three weeks of "Pre-Advent"
-- the three Sundays between All Saints and Advent 1. During this time we encourage you to take an intentional “pause” before the waiting and preparing of Advent. Advent used to be seven weeks, up until the 7th century, and there is a small movement within the Church to return to that (see theadventproject.org
). Many of the scripture readings and prayers after All Saints give a hint or lean towards Advent, so Father Jerry says... why not just go there!
