Mercy Sr. Elizabeth Davis, left, participates in the lighting of the cosmic Advent wreath with others in her community, the Sisters of Mercy of Newfoundland. Davis said the large rock is from Labrador (among the most ancient rocks on Earth), the conch and two figurines are from Peru, and the stones and a pine cone from Newfoundland. The wreath was designed by Notre Dame Sr. Joyelle Proot. (Courtesy of Elizabeth Davis)
