December 8 Weekly Updates and Information
Published on Dec 8, 2018 21:15

In the second week of Advent, we light the first two candles of our Advent wreath. We await the coming of our Lord Jesus and light the way to see the face of God. We follow the light of God with faith and hope.

God of light, bring us faith.

Help us to find faith this Advent.

Help us to prepare for the coming of the Lord.

We make this prayer in the name of Jesus your Son,

source of our faith.  ~ Amen.

~ Ms. Medve-Racine

Christmas Cheer

With the Christmas season fast approaching, we would like to spread our generosity and support to families who are in need. We will be collecting gently used coats, snow pants, hats, mittens and scarves for both children and adults through a Coat Drive. We will also be collecting new and unwrapped toys, books and/or games through a Toy Drive. Please send any of these items to school with your child to support our Coat Drive and Toy Drive this Christmas season. Our final day of collecting items will be Friday, December 14th, 2018.

Thank you so much for your generosity. As a school community,  together we can help families in need this Christmas.
