Advent 2020

The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops has produced a four week video series entitled, Journey through Advent. These short videos provide a heartening reflection on each Sunday’s Gospel and invite the viewer into a deep and meaningful preparation for the coming of Christmas. The videos feature our own Bishop, His Excellency Bishop Crosby, O.M.I. We invite you to take a moment each week to watch the brief video and use the questions provided for your own private reflection. Videos and reflection questions will be uploaded in advance of the upcoming Sunday celebration for your preparation.

Our Advent Resource for Youth has been developed in collaboration with the Office for Justice and Peace and the Office for Refugees. This resource challenges our readers to stand in prayerful solidarity with those who suffer as refugees, displaced from family and homeland. 

This is intended to be used as an online interactive resource. Look for special links and clips which will help in your prayer, your conversation and your action.  Remember, the Lord hears the cries of the poor. Let us be a voice for the voiceless this Advent season as we await the Lord in joyful hope.
