Weekly global religious, spiritual and nonreligious observance information

Submitted by Stefan Yates

The President's Committee on Religion, Spirituality and Nonreligious Diversity presents the global observance information for the week of Nov. 29-Dec. 5.

Nov. 29-Dec. 24, Advent — Christian time of preparation for observing the birth of Jesus Christ. Advent is observed with the lighting of candles, display of wreaths, and special ceremonies. Advent anticipates the coming again to the earth of Jesus Christ.

Nov. 30, St. Andrew's Day — Christian observance of the coming of Christianity to the area now known as Scotland. The martyrdom of St. Andrew is remembered as the season of advent.

The president's committee welcomes those of all global faith, spiritual and nonreligious worldview commitments.

For further information, please see our website and/or contact Beverley Earles, chair, at earles@k-state.edu.

The committee is looking for your input for observances to announce for the spring 2022 semester. If you have observances to contribute, please email earles@k-state.edu.
