This Christmas WILL be different.
Lavish parties will be canceled and
Family gatherings will be smaller; but
Join us through an Advent Journey
Welcome to your Advent Calendar
Prepare your heart for the Advent Season
Journey with us during these four weeks of advent and let the light of Christ shine through our love and good actions to our families and neighborhoods.
Prayers & Reflections
Focus on the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ.
Prayer gives us an opportunity to be thankful for God’s blessings and the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for all mankind.
About our Christmas Ministry
Now that the layers of commercial traditions have been stripped away by the COVID virus, we’re invited to Rediscover Christmas in a Christ-centered way. Gone are the lavish parties and crowded shopping malls that have pulled families apart, leaving barely enough energy to get to Mass on Christmas Day.
This year focus your celebration on the greatest gift you were ever given, Jesus Christ, by participating in this advent journey and sharing rediscoverchristmas.org with your family and friends.
LET THE LIGHT OF GOD GUIDE YOU BACK TO CHRIST.
DECEMBER 21, 2020

St. Andrew Christmas Novena
A prayer to increase our awareness of the real focus of Christmas
This Novena, unlike others, lasts 25 days, beginning of the Feast of St. Andrew, November 30 up until Christmas Day. Traditionally, it is prayed 15 times a day.
