Prepare the Manger
Borrowing from a French custom, we would like to prepare a soft place for the Christ Child on Christmas Eve in our nativity. Bags of straw with instructions will be available in the Gathering Area throughout Advent.
- Find a time to examine your day as a family and share experiences and efforts to prepare hearts for Christ.
- Gather a piece of straw for each spiritual effort
- Good Deeds
- Extra Sacrifices
- Extra Prayers
- Bring your straw to Mass on Christmas Eve to place in the manger.
- If you are not going to be here, you may still complete this activity in your home.
This is a great activity even if you do not have young children.
