Preparing for Advent. Really? In October?

Preparing for AdventPreparing for Advent during October? Really?

Really! This is the perfect time to begin thinking about Advent which is just 6 weeks away! Beginning Monday, October 22, a new resource will be available that you’ll find especially helpful:

How are you preparing your faith community for Advent? How are you preparing yourself? Faith formation leaders across the country answered these questions in anticipation of the joyful season of Advent. All next week, Catholic Faith Formation’s Facebook page will be sharing their answers, from baking projects and Scripture readings to candlelight services and Advent Trees of Kindness.” Beginning Monday, October 22, 2012, visit the page for inspiration in your Advent preparations, and check out the newly-compiled resource page full of activities, prayers, videos, articles, and more to help you make the most of this sacred season. 

Please note that, beginning Monday, October 22, a tab will appear on the Catholic Faith Formation Facebook Page that will take you to this Advent feature. Until then, you have an opportunity to “like” this page to stay current with the posts and to see some of the other resources available there.
