As you know, Advent begins on Sunday, November 30, 2014.
Last year, I created an Advent PowerPoint that was very popular. This presentation includes a script (in Notes Pages view) to assist you in effectively leading your students to a deeper understanding of this wonderful season. When you download the presentation from authorSTREAM, you can sign in with your Facebook account, or you can sign up for authorSTREAM—which is a great way to get some of my other presentations!
Likewise, don’t forget the free Advent Prayer Packet that I’ve put together this year. This packet includes the following:
- Two fully organized Advent prayer services, one specifically designed as a Penance service.
- A guided reflection on the name Emmanuel, “God with us.”
- A family prayer card to encourage families.
And finally, don’t miss the great variety of Advent resources available from Loyola Press.
Let us approach the season of preparation and waiting with anticipation and excitement.
