An Advent Invitation
As we prepare ourselves for the celebration of the birth of Christ, the Catholic Health Association invites you to discover the spiritual practice of hospitality as a profound, subversive act of love — where in every encounter, God's transforming presence dwells.
Each week of Advent, CHA will offer an engaging spiritual smorgasbord to encourage you to live with more intention as you practice hospitality — in your heart, your home, your workplace and your community. May you and your health care colleagues find nourishment and hope in the days ahead through our offering of prayers, scriptures and reflections, stories, recipes, podcast episodes and music.
We thank the Catholic Health Association for providing these Advent prayer resources for all to enjoy! Download the material below.
The Archdiocese of Chicago is offering a web page filled with online resources to help you, your family and your community journey through the season of Advent. The resource page is also available in Polish and Spanish. Additionally, their TV and Radio team worked with Dr. Angela Swain, Sr. Pat Bergen, CSJ, Sr. Kathleen Sherman, CSJ, Fr. Alejandro Marca and Fr. Jason Torba to capture their reflections for our Advent journey.
Boston College has also provided a weekly video Advent reflection.
