Join us during this Advent season for prayerful reflection and hopeful anticipation. Every Monday you will receive a special Advent reflection for the coming Sunday. The reflections are available online, on social media, and can also be downloaded as a complete set. Enjoy the Sunday Advent scripture readings through the lens of justice and mercy:
Catholic Mobilizing Network's Executive Director, Karen Clifton, explains the concept of restorative justice and reflects on how it is tied to our Catholic faith.
Prepared by Alexandra Carroll, M.T.S., this prayer service focuses on the life and ministry of St. Maximilian Kolbe, the patron saint of prisoners and the pro-life movement. This service lifts up the work of all pro-life advocates and highlights in a particular way the call we have to lift up the dignity of all life and work to end the use of the death penalty.
