LITTLE BLUE BOOKS
Please pick up your “little blue book” to reflect upon, to write in, or tear out a page this Advent season. The left hand page is like a buffet table with a variety of thoughts about the Advent and Christmas seasons, the feast of each day and various traditions and customs. The right hand page (except Sundays), takes us through the Sunday.
