Allen the Acolyte, aka Bob Choiniere of CLC at St. Francis Xavier, hosts children's video series for Advent.

A Stages’ ADVENTure Calendar

CLC Member Robert Choiniere, Managing Director of Stages on the Sound, Inc., is pleased to announce their 15th annual Christmas production: A Stages’ ADVENTure Calendar!  It is a modern take on the beloved, age-old Advent tradition.  Intended for children in grades 1 to 5 but with appeal for all ages, a new video episode will debut on the Stages’ website each day. 

This year’s production is a gift from Stages to all Catholic schools and parish communities to celebrate 15 years of partnership in arts education.  To take part in the ADVENTure Calendar simply go to the Stages’ website and a new episode will be waiting for you each day! No tickets needed! 

Each episode follows our host as he discovers the themes of Advent; Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace.  Along the way he will encounter friends, new and old, who will help guide him in finding the true meaning of Christmas. A special feature will include videos of children from around the world, including children from CLC Families, who will talk about some of their Christmas traditions!

From wherever you are you can join the fun as we journey towards Bethlehem at beginning daily on Sunday, November 29th.
