The Advent Season – Week 1

As we immerse ourselves in the season of Advent, over the next four weeks, I will share with you videos, music, and various presentations that I’ve located on the Internet.  May these materials be an inspiration to you as you enjoy what others, who are like you, have created.  If you like, you may forward the blog article to other catechists, parents, friends or anyone in your parish communities who would like to pause for a moment to prepare their minds and hearts over these next four weeks for the celebration of the Lord Jesus into our lives!
