Advent Calendar for Adults

Sssshhhh! Quiet! Slow down! It’s Advent! December 1st marks the first day of Advent and the first day of the Church year. Advent is a time to prepare our hearts to receive anew the mystery of God’s Word that dwells within each of us. How do we prepare? Like Joseph we listen to hear the angel announce that Jesus will be born. Like Mary we slow down to notice the first flutters of new life. Like Elizabeth we bless family and friends with joy for the expected Jesus.

This year we offer several ways to prepare a place for Jesus in our hearts each day. Below is an online Advent Calendar with a daily message and followed be an Arts & Faith video.

Advent is a season in which we prepare ourselves to receive the indwelling of the Spirit anew and to celebrate the anniversary of Jesus’ birth on earth. May this time of love, hope, peace and joy be blessed.
