A religious order in southern California is kicking off Advent with a digital calendar that allows Catholics to go more in-depth as they prepare for the Christmas season.
The virtual calendar was launched on the first Sunday of Advent by the priests of the Norbertine order from St. Michael's Abbey in Orange County, California.
The website, advent.theabbotscircle.com, will include daily reflections, videos, music, and commentaries.
Each day, the calendar will delve into a different Advent-related topic, such as the meaning behind Advent candles and wreaths, historical information about the magi and shepherds, and a brief biography of St. Nicholas.
