Waiting in Joyful Hope

 

 

Welcome! Maranatha, Come Lord Jesus!

To help you  dive deeper into the meaning of Advent and Christmas the Catholic Church of Montreal has prepared a series of resources for all ages to be enjoyed from your own pace and at your own rhythm.

Podcasts, books, music, online retreats, family activities and crafts and a whole lot more! Start by choosing your age group and then you favorite “playlist” (suggestions of things to do, to watch, to listen to and to pray) and prepare your heart for the coming of God as a little child.

May the longing in our hearts for God’s presence among us grow stronger through this pandemic!

Please note: playlists for the Christmas season will be posted on December 13th! Stay tuned!

Christmas Season

Christmas Season : On Christmas (“Noël” comes from Latin “natalis”, meaning “birth”, “nativity”), Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus, Son of God, awaited Saviour, announced by the prophets.
