Advent and Christmas Resources

 

Celebrating Advent and Christmas

Discover music collections, prayer resources, playlists and more, all created to help you prepare for and celebrate the arrival of Our Lord.

 

We understand the difficulties the entire Church faces this year in planning for the Advent-Christmas season, and OCP is here to help. In light of COVID-19, our parish celebrations will look quite different, of course, but there are still creative ways you can help your community enter in to the spirit of this holy time. Advent is a time of waiting and anticipation, preparation and hope, silence and longing. That will be especially true this year. And the joy of Christmas, of God becoming one of us, is also more relevant and urgent. OCP has many resources to help with communal worship and the efforts of your families and individuals celebrating these sacred seasons at home.
