We are offering a wonderful 6 week online session on Advent designed to help families prepare for and observe the Advent season in a holy and edifying manner to prepare for Christ's birth at Christmas.
Throughout the Advent session, participants will learn:
-what Advent is
-the history of Advent
-the Church's preparation in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the Divine Office
-the longing and expectation of the prophets and holy people in the Old Testament who prayed and longed for the Messias as well as those events/people which showed the need for a Messias and/or foreshadowed Christ's coming
-explanation of the symbols used in Advent and at Christmas
-a little info about each week of Advent
-the saints and feasts of Advent
-different crafts, practices, and customs to help in having a holy Advent and in bringing our minds, our hearts, and our souls closer to Christ in his first and second comings
-and more...

This is a PRE-RECORDED SESSION. Being that this session is pre-recorded, you can complete it on your own time!  In addition, you can go back and access any/all videos that have become available so even if you start late you won't be missing anything!
