"The season of Advent means there is something on the horizon the likes of which we have never seen before. So stay. Sit. Linger. Tarry. Ponder. Wait. Behold. Wonder. There will be time enough for running."
- Jan Richardson.
Tomorrow is the beginning of the Catholic Church’s new year and is the First Sunday of Advent.
The Advent season is marked by anticipation, eager participation, and waiting in joyful hope. While it may be tempting to get caught up in the grandeur and excitement of Christmas, our Churches of the Home are called to different sort of celebration. Advent is to possess an atmosphere of expectant joyous calm with time spent in prayer and mediation.
Resurrection invites you to embrace this season of preparation. Continue the Advent traditions you hold dear and introduce new ideas to observe the season. Don't let Advent pass you by. On December 24th, will your Church of the Home look back and say "Where did Advent go?"
Visit Resurrection's Advent page to find resources to help your Church of the Home grow this Advent. New resources will be added weekly.

READINGS FOR THIS WEEKEND’S MASSES
VIRTUALLY SUNDAY REFLECTION
A Time Of Renewed Hope
Join Fr. Paul as he reflects on this Sunday's Scripture readings.
How can hope be found through the act of listening?
New to Resurrection is "Project Nazareth: Faith Begins at Home"
This is an initiative that will deliver weekly resources to Churches of the Home. These resources will give suggestions for how to Pray, Listen, Act and Ponder with a given topic throughout the course of each week. Project Nazareth will explore the fundamental Gospel message of the Sunday Mass and other special topics such as the Year of the Eucharist.
This is a way to weave faith formation into the fabric of family life.
