Rejoice! Advent Meditations with the Holy Family - Order Form

By Fr. Mark Toups

Experience a more peaceful, more joyful, and more
meaningful Advent than ever before!

Rejoice! Advent Meditations with the Holy Family is a prayer resource with daily meditations that will enrich your Advent by inviting you to experience the first Advent with Joseph and Mary, as they await the birth of their son, the Savior of the world.

Together with the guided meditation videos, this journal will help you to see the marriage of Mary and Joseph in a new light. You will ponder what was in their hearts and minds as they awaited the birth of Jesus—and you will be invited to reflect on and deepen your own relationships with others. Rejoice! will help you open your heart to the peace and joy of the Holy Family as you prepare for the coming of Jesus this Christmas.

  1. Order Rejoice! for $8.50. Pick up at the Parish Office on November 23-24 from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. or November 25 from 9 a.m. - noon.
  2. Watch the weekly videos that support the meditations here! 
  3. Spend time everyday reading and praying with the meditation booklet. 
  4. Join St. Mary Magdalene's optional, weekly Zoom group on Wednesday, December 2, 9, 16 and 23, at 7 p.m. where we will pray the Psalms and share our impressions and experiences while meditating on the Advent materials. The Zoom link will be in your book purchase confirmation email.
  5. Another option this year is to join a Facebook group where you can read and share your thoughts on the daily meditations.
  6. On Sunday evenings you may join Fr. Toups for "Rejoice! LIVE" at 8 p.m. on the Ascension Press Facebook page as he walks us through the lighting of the Advent wreath candles and praying.
