Advent 2017

New Creation Resource for Advent

Global Catholic Climate Movement has produced a resource to enrich your Advent by reflecting on and celebrating the good gift of creation:

  • A list of the top 5 ways to “green” your Christmas
  • A creation-themed Advent calendar (both a print version and an interactive digital version)
  • 4 coloring pages for kids, featuring an Advent wreath, Pope Francis, and the Earth
  • A Christmas novena with 9 days of prayers to celebrate the Creator and creation

This Christmas, we have an opportunity to take small steps away from consumerism and towards a more authentic, joyful celebration.  Caring for creation can add to our joy.


“Creation is of the order of love.”  (Pope Francis, Laudato Si’)
