Resources for Young Pilgrims

Journey with Mary- An Advent Journey for Families 


Spend some time together as a family and join Mary on her amazing journey! It doesn't matter how many people are in your family or how young or old they are.

Each week has a Bible passage to read and is followed by reflection and prayer ideas. Finally, there are a variety of activities each week for you to choose from to suit your family. Many of the activities require no extra materials or preparation and you can do them whenever you choose throughout the week.
