Advent Week 1 Prayer

Advent Week 2 Prayer

Christmas Mass Times

From the Schoenstatt Girls Youth:

Every year the Schoenstatt Girls Youth have held an Advent Rally Day for primary School Girls. Due to the current Corona pandemic, this is not possible this year. However, we still want to spread the message of God’s love for each of us – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life. (John 3:16)

So we have come up with two new ideas … an online advent calendar and YouTube videos!

This is the link for our Advent Calendar, which is aimed more towards primary school children  - the calendar will be active from the 1st December.


Family Catechetics:1st Sunday of Advent

Family Catechetics: 2nd Sunday of Advent



Make a background tree using either a bare tree, paper outline of a tree or just a space for your ornaments.

To make the Jesse Tree ornaments you will need:

  • glue; ribbon or string to attach the ornaments to the tree;
  • crayons, markers, paints or colored pencils, and cardboard stock to create paper background for the ornaments.

The ornaments may be made or decorated with bits and pieces of bright colored paper, cloth, wood, plastic, etc., that you may find around your home.

You will also need a Bible to tell the stories.
