Advent & Christmas eResources
Advent Waiting...with the Flock

For all ages •  A Light Approach to the Serious Matter of Preparing for the Coming of the Lord

Also available as a color booklet.

Three formats: double-sided handouts/inserts, booklets, and images/plain text.

Pope Francis has been clear that he wants us leaders of the church to have the smell of the sheep.  Make your weekly bulletin or Facebook page smell like the sheep, too, with this delightful day-by-day Advent resource by the hilarious Jean Denton.  Use it in one of these ways:

  • Print a double-sided handout each week of the Advent season and insert it in your bulletin or distribute it at parish meetings.
  • Paste both pages directly into your weekly bulletin document files (we provide full-page images).
  • Paste one cartoon per day along with the reflection text on your parish social media account: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
  • Email one cartoon per day to your parishioners.

Jean's cartoons will draw people in and then guide them to a simple Scripture quotation and daily reflection.

The price for this resource includes a license to reproduce or email this resource to share it with anyone in your parish.  It is designed to reproduce well in color or black & white.  It's an extremely affordable way to help your people reflect more deeply on the season.

    I was so happy with this. I've posted these on my parish's FaceBook page. I think I might even print a few out and post on one of our bulletin boards at the church. Will definitely consider purchasing some of the other Flock e resources for upcoming liturgical seasons.
