A LANE Families Seasonal Program

"John the Baptist appeared, preaching in the desert of Judea and saying, 'Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!' It was of him that the prophet Isaiah had spoken when he said: A voice of one crying out in the desert, prepare the way of the LORD, make straight his paths.
— Matthew 3:1-3

We make a lot of preparations to celebrate Christmas, but are we preparing the way of the LORD in our hearts, homes, and neighborhoods? During Advent, Christ is calling us to get ready for his kingdom in three ways:

  1. Prepare for the Second Coming: Jesus will one day return to judge the world and establish his everlasting kingdom. Are you ready?
  2. Prepare for Holy Communion: Jesus comes to be with us in every Mass, especially when we receive the Eucharist. Are you ready?
  3. Prepare for the Season of Christmas: Jesus was adored from birth, and we will join this chorus of praise during the feasts of Christmas. Are you ready?


Let us heed St. John the Baptist's Advent call to repent and get ready for the kingdom of heaven! You can start preparing the way of the LORD by clicking the “Register for free” button below.
