Twelve Days of Christmas (Click on Image)

These materials, produced by the Northern Pastoral Network, provide us with a series of reflections following the feasts of the twelve days of Christmas. On each of the twelve days we are invited to spend time with scripture, reflection and prayer. You may want to use this booklet in your private prayer or find a time to gather each day with your family. We pray this Christmas that each of us will rediscover the meaning of Our Lord’s Nativity and the great hope that it proclaims for the world.
