Advent is the beginning of the Church's liturgical year and our season of preparation for the celebration of Christmas. Advent prepares us to celebrate the anniversary of the Lord's birth on Christmas as we consider the mystery of the incarnation, anticipate Christ's second coming at the end of time and look for the ways Jesus is born in our lives each day. In 2019, it begins on Sunday, Dec. 1.
CHA is pleased to annually provide resources to help those in the ministry of health care and even beyond consider the season of Advent and Christmas — their meaning and connections to their own lives. The 2019 collection was written by Ann M. Garrido, D.Min.
The reflections are provided in three formats: hardcopy, audio and video. CHA also published the series in an adult coloring book, which is still available for electronic download.
We hope that you will share these messages widely across your organization and in social media.
