Print and cut resources for liturgical living in the home or classroom throughout Advent and Christmas. The calendar can be used in this and every year.
HERE’S WHAT YOU GET IN THIS SET:
(All color pages are also included in black and white.)
• A colorful Advent Clipart Countup Calendar featuring medallions for Advent weekdays and Sundays, special days, saints’ days, feasts, and fasting days.
• A colorful Christmas Clipart Countup Calendar featuring medallions for Christmas weekdays, saints’ days, and feasts.
• A brief explanation of the symbols used on each medallion.
• A sample mock-up arrangement of the medallions.
• A spirit of Advent poster.
• A Christmas Anticipation Prayer.
• A Joy to the World Christmas poster.
• Eight different Advent and Christmas quotes from the Bible, the catechism, and the saints.
• Family Secret Santa selection slips.
• Family patron saint and saint for the year cards.
• Printable hay, storage envelope, baby, and instructions to create Straw for Baby Jesus.
These are the practices I recommend for Advent and Christmas in my book, the Catholic All Year Compendium.
Listed individually, all these resources would sell for $25, but I really want everyone who has read about these ideas in my book to be able to actually try them out! So I’m bundling them together and listing them for only $10!
You get a 12 page black and white pdf info file and two 15 page content files (one in color and one black and white, print one or the other) to print full-page, single-sided at home or at a copy shop. (I uploaded the info file in b&w and the content file in color to Staples.com and was able to pick it up at the local store the same day, for $8.40. 1-3 business day shipping is available for an additional $9.99.)
Please purchase this Extended License for School/Parish Use if you want to print unlimited copies of ONE Catholic All Year Shop listing to distribute to the members of ONE school or parish. Or this Extended License for Family/Group/Class Use if you want to print fewer than 50 copies of ONE Catholic All Year Shop listing to distribute to ONE religious ed group, prayer group, mom’s group, book club, retreat, conference, class, or extended family.
Additional supplies you’ll need for this kit:
- a box or basket for Straw for Baby Jesus
- scissors to cut out the elements and (optionally) a 2.5 in paper punch to cut out the medallions and a guillotine paper cutter for the straw
