Blessed Advent

Advent is a period of preparation that extends the four Sundays before Christmas.  Children love to anticipate activities. Filling the empty manager with hay for small sacrifices, lighting a Mary candle as a daily reminder on the dinner table, and decorating a Jesse tree with old sacrament ornaments are all ways to help children prepare for Christmas and the coming of Christ the King. This school year we have been choosing a virtue each month to practice and focus on.  December's virtue is patience.   Patience comes from the words peace and science and is the ability to suffer or endure something evenly.  Patience is an exercise of faith, love, and humility that makes us grow.  This coming week Grade 3 will be leading Advent services on Monday morning (Dec. 10th) in the Church at 8:30.  All are invited to attend. Winter is here!  Please remind your child to bring their "Fab 5" (coat, hat, gloves, snow pants, and snow boots) each and every day! Mark your calendars!  Our Christmas Concert, "A Journey Through The Nativity Story", will be held Wednesday, December 19th, at 7:00 PM in the church.  [...]
