In this post, I will be sharing my free printable monthly liturgical calendar for the month of December.
Happy Catholic New Year!
Did you know, the new liturgical year begins with the First Sunday of Advent? This year, it falls on December 3rd. That means, this is the perfect time of year to begin living the liturgical calendar of the Church, if you don’t yet do so.
We actually have the shortest possible Advent season this year, because Christmas Day, December 25, falls on a Monday. Last year in 2022, we had a full fourth week of Advent. We actually burned our Advent candles all the way!

Catholic Liturgical Living in December
The month of December is chock-full of cool liturgical traditions that kids love. This season can get very busy, very quickly though. In your celebrations remember that Advent is a time of penance and preparation for the season of Christmas.

- Advent Devotions (here’s what I am doing)
- Advent Wreath (where we get our candles)
- St Andrew Christmas Novena
- Jesse Tree
- St Francis Xavier
- The Feast of St Nicholas
- The Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary
- Our Lady of Guadalupe
- St Lucy/Lucia Day
- St John of the Cross
- Bambinelli Sunday
- Gaudete Sunday
- The O Antiphons (coming soon)
- The Nativity of Our Lord (Christmas)
- St Stephen (we sing this)
- St John, Apostle & Evangelist
- The Holy Innocents
- The Holy Family (Consecration here)
There are many other feasts and ways to celebrate in December. That’s why I recommend that you print your copy of my liturgical calendar free download and add anything else you plan to do!
I also have many activities for these feasts available in my Advent Activity Bundle (Etsy) – I’m going to be making a free version available this year so subscribe and stay tuned for that email!
