2016 Advent and Christmas Reflections

Sunday, Nov. 27, marks the beginning of the liturgical year and the season of Advent. To help Catholic health care organizations celebrate this important time, CHA has produced a reflection for each week of Advent and a Christmas reflection. We hope they will become a source of comfort, joy and inspiration to be shared with others in your ministry.

How can they be shared?

Here are ways others have shared these resources with their communities:

  • Distributing through your social media channels.
  • Posting to the intranet/staff portal.
  • Sharing via weekly emails.
  • Including on the intranet and as publicly-available resources.
  • Using in hardcopy and/or as an audio reflection at meetings.
  • Posting in hardcopy in break areas and other spots for availability to staff and volunteers.
