Upcoming Church Holidays

Advent begins on Sunday, marking the beginning of the new Church Year. December is a fairly busy time in the Church Year, and besides Advent includes The Feast of the Immaculate Conception, Christmas, and the Feast of the Holy Family.

I always have loved Advent and Christmas. Growing up these had profound meaning, and made the rest of the year seem rather plain. It seemed like that at Advent and Christmas, it was OK to get liturgical, and embrace tradition. I always joke (although there is a large amount of truth here) that I became a liturgical Christian because I wanted it to be like Advent and Christmas every day of the year.

On ChurchYear.Net, in addition to the above links, we have: Advent Prayers, Advent Hymns, Advent Wreath Prayers and Readings, Christmas Prayers and Holy Family Feast Prayers. Like I said…it’s a busy time.
