December Week 2 Faith Formation
Welcome to our second week of December, but to our third week of Advent. This third Sunday of Advent we read, pray, and reflect on the joy that God’s plan gives us (foretold by the prophets and fulfilled by the life and death of Christ), and we meditate on the promise of Christ’s coming glory-filled return. The third Sunday of Advent is traditionally called Gaudete Sunday. Hope you’re enjoying some of the Advent activities that the program offers, but also some of your own family traditions that you do through the season as well!
