Advent 2019 begins the Year of the Word: The God Who Speaks, an initiative of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales. Scripture is the foundation of the life of the Catholic Church. So the Year of the Word’s vision is to celebrate, share and live out our faith through deeper engagement with Scripture.
To support this initiative, we’ve produced two new Advent reflections, which encourage deeper exploration of key seasonal scriptures. Word Made Flesh and Angels, Shepherds and Wise Men are available to download below.
You can use all our Advent reflections for assembly or use them to form the basis of a longer Advent liturgy.
Download our Advent and Christmastide workshops and reflections below.
For primary school Advent resources please visit our Mission Together website. These resources are also useful for Year 7 pupils and ALN/SEN students. Mission Together is the children’s branch of Missio.
Of course, Christmastide extends beyond 25 December ! So Missio has also prepared workshops to accompany The Epiphany and The Baptism of Our Lord. Both resources highlight our call to bring the love of God to all, through faith and action.
