Prepare for the coming of Christmas by walking through the Advent season with a Catholic family!

Advent and Christmas are holy seasons everywhere, but the Catholic children of Austria have an especially rich set of traditions to draw on. 

Very Young Catholics in Austria begins in Advent and follows a young family through Christmas and Epiphany. We see the children creating tiny cookie houses, attending the traditional Advent Mass at dawn, enjoying news from friends in the snow-covered Alps, and reading the Christmas story from St. Luke’s Gospel.

Other adventures include a visit to the traditional Christmas market in their small town, and a spin on the ice-skating rink at the Vienna City Hall. Throughout all of their adventures runs the thread of their strong faith and the joy of Christ’s birth.

BONUS materials include information about:

  • the Rorate Mass,
  • Advent Markets,
  • what a Christkind is, 
  • and how the date of Christmas was selected!

Another great Catholic children's Advent book is An Advent Hope: A Children's Book about Family Advent Traditions
