Family Advent Resources

These free downloadable (and printable) placemats are kid-friendly and come with simple Advent and Christmas prayers before meals.

Advent is a busy season for all of us! There’s shopping to be done, decorations to be hung, and parties to attend. All the more reason for us to slow down and remember what Advent is all about.

Project Nazareth is offering free downloadable, printable placemats to help you gather with your children and pray together as a family. These placemats offer not only a chance to color, but a simple way to pray (and sing) during each week of Advent.

May you and your family have a beautiful and blessed Advent season!

Wreath Blessing

Advent wreaths are a traditional Catholic practice and are found in churches and homes during the four weeks leading up to Christmas. Typically on the First Sunday of Advent, the wreath is blessed by a priest at church or by a family member in the home. Download a blessing to use with your family below.
