In support of the catechetical ministries in the parishes, we would like to provide the following resources for you and your families as you journey through this liturgical year.
Advent Reflection For Families
Designed with parents in mind, this resource can be used to complement the catechetical programme in your parish. Whether you have received it from your parish catechetical team or you have received this as a resource for your children, the Advent Reflection for Families, as well as the Advent Calendar activity, reinforces what is covered in the session outlines, Preparing for Advent, presented during the last week of catechetical sessions. Check with your parish catechetical team on how to best use this resource as you journey through Advent with your child.

This resource is often used in the catechetical space and depicts the liturgical cycle, highlighting the feasts days and the various seasons in the Catholic Church.

When face-to-face catechesis resumes, parish catechetical teams may wish to print out hard copies for each catechetical space. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for the A2 printable softcopy and the ensuing printing instructions as well.
