Advent 2019 begins the Year of the Word: The God Who Speaks, an initiative of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales. As scripture is foundational to the life of the Catholic Church, the Year of the Word’s vision is to celebrate, share and live out our faith through deeper Scriptural engagement.
To support this initiative, we’ve produced two new Advent reflections, encouraging deeper exploration of key seasonal scriptures. Word Made Flesh and Angels, Shepherds and Wise Men are available to download below.
Please note, all our Advent reflections may be included in an assembly or used to form the basis of a longer Advent liturgy.

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.
As a reminder to students that Christmastide extends beyond December 25, 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.
