Advent 2016 for Kids

Advent is here! This is a special time to prepare for Christmas and to welcome Jesus into our hearts. Jesus was born into a family. Mary and Joseph loved and cared for him. Just like us, Jesus had grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

During Advent we count the weeks until Christmas. The candles of the Advent wreath remind us to wait for Jesus and to prepare a place for him in our hearts. We light one candle on each of the four Sundays of Advent. Their bright flames bring light to our lives and hope into our world.

Jesus, during Advent we remember how you were born so many years ago. We wait for your coming into our hearts in a special way at Christmas. Help us to watch and wait for you with hope and joy. In your blessed name, we pray. Amen.

Beginning today, you are invited to spend the next four weeks reflecting on your faith in God and the Church. But you will also be challenged to put that faith into action by engaging in activities that, in small, simple ways, will help to create a better world.
