Rejoice! Finding Your Place in the Advent Story

Ascension

Experience a more peaceful, more joyful, and more meaningful Advent than ever before

What does God want this Advent? Simple. He wants you. He want a personal encounter with you. This year, as we journey through Advent with Rejoice! Finding Your Place in the Advent Story, we’ll learn about the places, people, and events that shaped the story of the very first Advent and shape our own lives today.

Rejoice! will help you open your heart to the peace and joy of the Advent season as you prepare for the coming of Jesus this Christmas. We look forward to journeying with you.

Indigenous Peoples and the Church: Walking Together Toward Healing and Reconciliation

Each week, beginning on Sunday, 21 November 2021, the Solemnity of Christ the King, the CCCB will release a video recording of a Bishop in Canada reflecting on the Gospel Reading for each Sunday of Advent. This year’s reflections were developed in view of the Indigenous Delegation which will be travelling to Rome to meet with Pope Francis from December 17 to 20, 2021. Each reflection is based one of the five essential stages of reconciliation: examen, confession, repentance, reparation (making amends), and reconciliation. Likewise, it is hoped these reflections will assist the faithful, Indigenous and non-Indigenous alike, in preparing for Pope Francis’ eventual apostolic journey to Canada.
