Advent is a time for us to prepare our hearts and minds for the coming of Jesus. We do this by gathering together in prayer, doing good deeds for others, reflecting on the nativity, and going to church. The communities at Chalice’s sponsorship sites all have their own unique ways of celebrating Advent and preparing for Christmas. Over the next four weeks we encourage you to join us as we light candles, pray, sing songs, share our traditions, and prepare the way of the Lord.

Prayer is at the root of every action Chalice undertakes. Our Canadian staff gathers each morning to pray for the children and families in our sites around the world, as well as for the intentions of our supporters. This special ministry nourishes our staff and offers all of our works to Christ.
The Chalice evena is an intentional prayer that is prayed daily by Chalice staff. We invite you to use the Chalice evena during your own time of personal prayer. You can download a copy of the chaplet and offer your own intentions, and those of your community.
"Most Holy Trinity, we place all our hope in you. You are our strength and our shield; in You our hearts trust; so we are helped and our hearts exult; and with our song we give thanks to You. (Psalm 28:7)”
