Happy Fourth Week of Advent Everyone! For the next few days, as we round out the season of Advent and prepare to celebrate Christmas, I hope you find some time for a little peace, quiet and serenity in your life in the midst of all of the shopping, wrapping and baking you’ll be doing.
This week, we’re hosting a “Book and DVD Bonanza” Contest featuring some of my favorites from the past year. Click here for details and be sure to enter by midnight on Saturday, December 28, 2008.
We’ll have some special columns in the days ahead from our wonderful CatholicMom.com contributors and this week’s Sunday Gospel Activities have been posted here. The January activities should begin to be posted in the next few days, so stay tuned for those coloring pages, Mass worksheets, lesson plans and puzzles.
I hope to be back later in the week with a Christmas message, but until then I wish you and your family all the joy and happiness of the season. Hope you have a blessed week!
