Online Advent Calendar

The first day of Advent heralds the beginning of the Catholic Church’s new year.  Advent (from ‘ad-venire’ in Latin or “to come to”) is the Church season encompassing the four Sundays and weekdays leading up to the celebration of Christmas.  Advent is a time of spiritual preparation for the Lord’s coming at Christmas.  Advent also prepares us for the second coming of Christ at the end of time.

The Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference are delighted to be bringing you their online Advent Calendar again this year.  It will go live on the First Sunday of Advent on 2 December 2018.  We hope you will be part of our journey through Advent this year.
