Caritas Australia's Global Education Coordinator for Resources and Partnerships, Kate Andréo, said, "The calendar gives a glimpse of the life-changing work we have supported over the past 50 years of love and compassion, with each day an opportunity to learn, act and pray for our partners in many regions around the world today. It is an opportunity to engage with our work during an important time in the Church's calendar."
There are various versions of the calendar to choose from: an online web calendar, Android and iPhone/iPad applications, and an interactive PowerPoint written specifically for primary school children.
The Advent calendar is aimed at school children as well as the public and parishioners and makes a great alternative to the usual chocolate-filled calendars many children are used to at Christmas.
This year, Advent begins on Sunday 30 November. You can download all versions of the Advent calendar from mid-November at www.caritas.org.au/advent.
