Advent Calendar

Welcome to the Catholic New Media Advent Calendar. From November 29 until Boxing Day on December 26, we featured content from a different Catholic blogger, author, podcaster or musician. Come back often. (If the doors on todays date don’t seem to be working, try refreshing the frame by right clicking on the calendar and reloading the frame).

If you are a Catholic blogger, podcaster, artist, author or musician who would like to contribute to the Advent Calendar next yeae, send us a message at We would love to feature all kinds of Catholic media in the advent calendar, from blog posts, to visual art, to music, and videos.

Throughout the month, all the content on the Calendar will be featured on the blog at You can subscribe to the feed of the Catholic New Media Roundup at

Embed the whole Advent Calendar

Please feel free to embed Catholic New Media Advent Calendar on your website. This sets up a 420X700 frame on your webpage containing the advent calendar. As I update and modify the calendar throughout advent, it should magically change within the frame. You can copy and paste the HTML embed code in the box below.

If you would rather just link back to this calendar page, I have created a couple of badges suitable for blog posts or sidebars. Choose the size you want then cut and paste the code below into your site to link back to the original image. I will update the images throughout advent and they will magically change on your site as well as the advent season progresses.
