The Centre for Life Marriage and Family are praying that Advent is a time of hope, faith, joy and peace, and a time of fruitful spiritual growth.
To assist Perth Catholics in their journey through Advent is a limited-run, A5 journal featuring daily Mass readings, practical prayer and devotional information, meditations from saints, spaces to write, and daily guided reflections.
At $15 inc. GST, bulk orders (with a discount) are also available upon request.
Manager Life Services, Bronia Karniewicz, said the journal collates daily readings and reflections to guide users into spending time with God each day, preparing for His birth at Christmas.
“Every day contains questions for reflection, asking us to think about waiting for Christ’s coming,” Ms Karniewicz said.
“Each day also contains the Gospel Acclamation, a reading from daily Mass, and a quote from a saint or Holy person for the day,” she said.
Ms Karniewicz explained that each week, the retreat journal concludes with an excerpt dedicated to a type of prayer, practice, or tradition that brings us closer to God.
“Advent is a joyful time of preparation in the liturgical calendar,” Ms Karniewicz said.
“However, for many couples and families, it can also be a time that challenges significant relationships in our life,” she said.
“Our agency provides counselling and support services for couples and families.
“We warmly welcome the opportunity to provide you and your family with support in times of need or to direct you towards services that can help,” Ms Karniewicz said.
