Dear Friends of A Family of Faith/Una Familia de Fe,
It’s finally time to dust off our Advent wreaths and candles!
You will find Advent resources and additional saints’ stories and coloring pages for December on the Liturgical Pacing page.
For those of you interested in a fun way to incorporate the Advent season into your curriculum, have fun with this Advent Trivia Kahoot. In this link here you can find a collection of the “O Antiphons” of Advent from the USCCB, a great source for prayer and reflection throughout the Advent season.
Lastly, a couple of items that you may want to put on your Christmas list. Sophia Institute Press has published some Christmas children’s books, the Joyful Mysteries Puzzles, a Christmas cookbook, and music CDs!
Cookbook: The Vatican Christmas Cookbook
Have fun learning about Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany while coloring the same gorgeous images found in our full-color Liturgical Year Calendars.
One new resource you will find in our ELessons is the Faith Journals. We have partnered with this great platform that provides the tools to create activities for reading, writing and reflecting on the Word of God or any other material used in class, supporting and transforming Religious Education.
Finally, I wanted to remind you that I aim to assist you. Thus, if you’re having any trouble using A Family of Faith/Una Familia de Fe or you have any questions with its implementation, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Also, if you have not attended an orientation of the Parent’s Guide, Leader’s Guide or online resources, I recommend you do so at the earliest opportunity! Please schedule yours here today!
As we prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ, know that you and your parish community will remain in our prayers, and we wish you a grace-filled Advent and a Merry Christmas!
