Advent Wreath Blessing

For Use by Laypersons

To offer this blessing, set out the Advent wreath, and pray this prayer over the wreath (or in proximity). You may want to sprinkle some holy water over the wreath as well. If you wish to have your wreath blessed by a priest, contact your local parish and ask about that process.

An Advent wreath with candles by David Bennett The Blessing
O God,
Blessed are you,
king of the universe:
you have created all things
for your eternal glory.
We ask your blessing on this Advent wreath,
that it may provide us
with your loving grace,
and prepare us
for the coming of Christ your Son.
Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen
