Journey through Advent: Video Series for Advent 2020

The following is a message from the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops.

As the season of Advent is very close, this memo is to inform you of a wonderful new initiative we have begun at the Conference. Since social media are an increasingly important platform for formation and evangelization at all levels, we have produced a series of videos entitled Journey through Advent, which includes an introduction to the liturgical Season and reflections on the Gospel readings of each Sunday in Advent. It is the result of a joint project between the CCCB’s Office national de liturgie, the National Liturgy Office, and the Office for Evangelization and Catechesis.

This short video series will be posted on the CCCB website and can be accessed through the rolling banner image at the top of the homepage entitled Journey through Advent: Video Series for Advent 2020. You are invited to post the links on your diocesan/eparchial website, as well as on your other social media platforms, and to share them broadly with pastors and pastoral teams who work in diocesan offices and parishes.

The links to the videos, in French and English, will be available on the CCCB website. Each Monday, the link for the upcoming Sunday celebration will be released.

We are very grateful to Bishop Douglas Crosby, O.M.I., and Bishop Pierre Goudreault for their generosity in preparing and recording these spiritual and pastoral reflections. We hope, especially in this time of COVID-19, that Journey through Advent will be a source of deep spiritual solace and insightful pastoral preparation for those who are looking for meaningful ways to welcome the Lord Jesus at Christmas.

Sincerely yours in Jesus with Mary,
