Christmas: Way of the Star

Christmas: Way of the Star is an opportunity to prayerfully immerse yourself in the Scriptures as we journey together through the different encounters that led to the birth of Christ.


An Invitation

We invite you on a journey of encounter this Christmas. 

Christmas: The Way of the Star is a series of guided reflections and moments of prayer that explore the Christmas story through the Scriptures. Individuals, families or groups can follow along with the free session outlines with video testimonies and resources. This dynamic resource can be shaped to suit any context.

The Way of the Star is the journey of Jesus. It is also our journey today. As you undertake this journey this Advent, be expectant about encountering Jesus in a new way over these coming weeks. We pray that you, your families, and communities of faith will be richly blessed.

The series has been produced in the Archdiocese of Canberra & Goulburn in Australia, in collaboration with Belong which seeks to draw a new generation into the life and mission of the Catholic Church.
