AdVent Catholic Checklist

There are so many amazing ways to celebrate this Advent season.

Here are some ideas this Advent season:

  • Start the St. Andrew Novena on the first Day of Advent (Dec. 27) and pray it every day until Christmas Day.
  • Pray the Jesse Tree devotional with your family (Starts on Dec. 1) 
  • Celebrate the Feast of St. Nicholas on December 6th- get children’s shoe goodies ready and talk about the real St. Nicholas!
  • Keep a prayer journal during advent and consider an Advent study or devotional
  • Go to Mass for the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Holy Day of Obligation)
  • Celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe on December 12th- Make rose cookies or Mexican hot chocolate!
  • Celebrate the Feast of St. Lucy on December 13th- Make cinnamon buns and read a book about St. Lucy Day
  • Watch “The Nativity Story” or a Brother Francis Christmas episode
  • Write a love letter to your grandparents
  • Go to confession
  • Make a meal for one of your parish priests or invite them for dinner!
  • Pray a family rosary for those who are lonely or struggling financially this season
  • Buy toys for children who are in need- check your local parish to see if they have a toy/gift drive
  • Sponsor a child
  • Go to adoration together as a family
  • Go through your things and donate to those less fortunate
  • Find a way to serve the community- make “goody bags” for the homeless in your area or consider volunteering at a nursing home with your family
  • Reach out to a friend of family member who you haven’t connected with in a while.

How will you and your family be celebrating this season? I pray you have a wonderful, Holy Advent.

  1. Hello Heather,
    I love your videos. I noticed a mistake on your Advent checklist. You have written Advent begins on December 27, I think you meant to say Nov. 27. I love the checklist and I will try to complete it! God Bless You!
