Eucharistic Prayers for Advent, Year A
The prayers provided here are designed to assist worship leaders and planners in their efforts to engage the five sacramental practices recommended in Invitation to Christ. We hope these resources will facilitate deeper and more regular reflection on the sacraments in your community of faith.
These brief Eucharistic prayers are drawn from the themes and imagery of the lectionary texts for the season of Advent, Year A. Note that there are four options in each of the three sections that make up the body of the prayer; these are to be used as indicated on the appropriate Sunday in Advent. In this format, the Words of Institution should be used at the Invitation to the Table or the Breaking of the Bread.
