Advent & Christmas Planner 2021 | 2022

I can’t believe how quickly this year has flown by! And similarly, it’s hard to believe that Advent is, once again, around the corner!

This year’s Advent and Christmas planner is:

I am a lay Catholic who is faithful to the Magisterium and teaching body of the Catholic Church. This booklet is not affiliated with an approved ecclesiastical source.

Both the Extraordinary Form Calendar of 1962 (the Latin Mass) and the Ordinary Form Calendar of 1969 (the Novus Ordo Mass in the vernacular) are represented in the planner. I use the Angelus Press liturgical calendar for the 1962 liturgical year, and the USCCB liturgical calendar for the Novus Ordo. Some historical feasts are also mentioned on the planner.

The Advent and Christmas planner contains daily plans and ideas from November 28 through January 13 (the Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord) – covering Advent and the Christmas season.

This booklet is in pdf format – you are free to download, print, read on your tablet, or computer.
