Catholic All December Printable Booklet of Prayers

This listing is for the Catholic All December Printable Booklet of Prayers, Blessings & Bible Readings as a digital download.

Revised to match the content in The Catholic All Year Prayer Companion.

In this booklet, you’ll find all the Bible passages, prayers, songs, and devotions that our family uses throughout the month of December to enhance our family prayer life and our liturgical living in the home. All the Catholic All Year monthly prayer booklets are designed to be used year after year.

I created this booklet to keep from having to wade through all the different versions of prayers available online, and because I really prefer paper over screens when I’m praying. For all the history, tradition, and backstories surrounding these prayers, blessings, and devotions and the feast days to which they are attached, please consult the Catholic All Year Compendium.

Advent and the new Catholic liturgical year begin on the Sunday closest to the feast of St. Andrew on November 30, which, despite what every Advent calendar thinks, is rarely on December 1. So you’ll find pre-Advent prayers, and instructions for making an Advent wreath in the Catholic All November Booklet.

The month of December is dedicated to Our Lady, Immaculately Conceived, as is the United States of America. In honor of her feast day on December 8, you’ll find prayers including a renewal of the consecration to the Immaculate Conception.

It’s a busy time of year, so be sure to choose the prayers, devotions, and activities that work for your family, schedule, season of life, and temperament. You don’t have to do it all!

You get a 60 page pdf file, that can be printed as individual pages, but I recommend opening the pdf in Adobe (there is a free version available for download here) and printing it as a booklet on 15 pieces of paper. For best results print on high quality paper (like 24 weight). Lighter weight paper will work, but there will be more show through from the back.
