December 31


The Seventh Day within the Octave of Christmas


The Christmas season carries on into the New Year and ends with the Baptism of the Lord (Jan. 13th this year). Take time to read about how you can carry the joy of Christmas with you into the New Year


Did you make any changes to your spiritual life during Advent that have not carried over into the Christmas season? What more can you do to grow closer to God during this joyous season? 


On this day, pray in thanksgiving for all that God has given to you in 2018, and pray for openness to what the Lord has in store for 2019. 


Make a list of faith-based New Year's resolutions for 2019!
