Video Gospel reflections planned for Advent, Christmas

In observance of Advent and Christmas, the archdiocesan offices of Evangelization and Communications have partnered to produce video reflections on the Gospel readings for Sundays and Holy Days.

The reflections feature clergy, religious and lay people.

The videos will be available on the archdiocesan website at and through all Archdiocese of New Orleans social media channels. The links to these videos will be available in advance to parish clergy and staff through the NOLACatholic e-Bulletin so that parishes may schedule their own social media posts.
