2019 Advent Calendar
We hope you enjoy this year's Eastside Catholic School Advent Calendar which we offer as a green alternative to a printed booklet. The readings and student photographs shared here are one small way to welcome the season of Advent. Advent comes from a Latin word that means “coming,” and at this time of year, it refers to the anticipated arrival of Christ. It’s a way of waiting spiritually, of looking forward to Christmas and all that Christmas promises.
We offer this calendar as a peaceful way to celebrate the season—peruse the daily prayers, responses and Gospel readings offered by the United Conference of Catholic Bishops and enjoy the lovely photographs our students have created. Feel free to "open" a window into the calendar each day or peruse any of the daily readings at your leisure.
Blessings and Merry Christmas!
