This Advent & Christmas planner is a tool to help your family live out the beauty and richness of the liturgical seasons of Advent and Christmas in the home with your children.

This planner is Catholic – from beginning to end. I want to be clear about that, and I hope if you are not Catholic, you will feel welcome, invited, and encouraged to use this planner and consider the riches here. After all, we may all claim the rich inheritance and liturgical traditions offered to us through the great Mystery of the Incarnation. 

Every effort has been made to include information with historical and liturgical accuracy.

For a linked booklist, see below!

This book is compiled by a lay Catholic who is faithful to the Magisterium and teaching body of the Catholic Church. This booklet is not affiliated with an approved ecclesiastical source.

Both the Extraordinary Form Calendar of 1962 (the Latin Mass) and the Ordinary Form Calendar of 1969 (the Novus Ordo Mass in the vernacular) are represented in the planner. I use the Angelus Press liturgical calendar for the 1962 liturgical year, and the USCCB liturgical calendar for the Novus Ordo.

The booklet contains daily plans and ideas from November 29 through January 13 (the Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord) – covering Advent and the Christmas season.
This booklet is in pdf format – you are free to download, print, read on your tablet, or computer.
