Getting Resourced: Advent for Catholic schools

Claire Fernandes

Claire Fernandes offers ideas for celebrating Advent in Catholic schools. She draws on her experience as a lecturer in Primary RE and as a children?s catechist trained in ?Catechesis of the Good Shepherd? methodology.

Advent is a time of preparation, a time of prayerful waiting when we remember Christ?s coming 2000 years ago, and we look forward in anticipation of his second coming.

How can we encourage children to make that journey with us this Advent? I suggest that this reflection on one of the Messianic prophecies could be used in class acts of worship in primary schools.
