Christmas is just around the corner! This isn’t only the “most wonderful time of the year,” it’s also the time when many non-practicing young adult Catholics actually attend Mass. The committed disciples who are following you are ready to dive into Advent practices, but for cultural Catholics, the holiday season is a time when they are navigating other issues like Christmas shopping, family relationships, and maybe even being away from home. Our goal is to address those top-of-mind topics for people not committed to faith and invite them to take a small step to see the core values behind this season.
Here is some of our top content on Christmas-related topics.

It’s not about how much, it’s about finding and holding on to those little things that still bring you holiday joy.
