Advent Resources

CRS Fair Trade invites you to reflect on the journey that brought Mary and Joseph to the stable—and to call to mind all those communities around the world that continue to encounter poverty in their own daily journeys.

Alternative Giving Activity

Use this Gift of Hope Tree to invite children and families to reflect on how Christ was born into poverty, and how this relates to the reality of many other families around the world. Or, simply print out the ornament templates and hang them on a tree in a school or parish gathering space. If your parish or school already coordinates a giving tree activity for your local community, consider adding these Gift of Hope Tree ornaments to your tree and inviting people to remember their local and global family at Christmas.
