Celebrating Advent as a Family

We parents and caring adults want to bring the beauty of our faith to our children. And at this time of year, we want to help enrich their experience of the weeks before Christmas.  But what do we adults get out of it?  The best thing about celebrating Advent with children is that they help us approach the season with fresh eyes and insight.  We know that with busy holiday schedules and commitments, it can be a daunting idea to bring the season of Advent—of joyful waiting—into your home.  Happily, you don’t have to figure it out on your own.  Check out the USCCB Family Advent Calendar and use the prompts and resources (included as live links) to celebrate Advent as a family this year.
