Session Ten (11/26/13) – Getting Ready for Advent

Last evening was our scheduled monthly Mass in church which was moved from 6:15 to 6:45 PM to give us one solid block of teaching before Mass (6:00 – 6:40) rather than a brief one before Mass (6:00 – 6:10) and another short segment after Mass (7:10 – 7:30). This worked out very well because Mass still went about an hour but didn’t take away from class time! I don’t think parents minded that the kids were in church for a few extra minutes past normal dismissal time!

Advent_PPT_homeI used the 35 minutes we had before Mass to introduce the kids to the season of Advent which begins this Sunday. To do so, I used an Advent PowerPoint presentation.

Don’t forget to look at all of these other wonderful Advent resources from Loyola Press!

  1. Thank you so much for the PDF of the advent power point. Please continue to include a PDF version for future offerings. This seems to be the only way I can open them.

    Happy Thanksgiving. Brenda
