Principal's Message

Advent

As we enter a new liturgical year with the beginning of Advent, let’s look for ways to welcome all those we encounter. Give fully with open hearts. Seek ways to unite with people. And let’s pray for peace.

Advent is a time rich in possibilities for families to come together and share in their faith. As a child, I remember working on a family chain that we built by performing acts of kindness. My older brother and I would race home everyday to tell my mother about all the nice things we did that day so that our chain would grow and grow. Eventually, we had a chain long enough to wrap around the Christmas tree. It was a great experience for me and one that I cherish even today.

This year during Advent, our Student Action Club is working on a similar project. Students will be encouraged to perform acts of kindness and add to a wreath hung in the main hallway. I cannot wait to see it grow over the next few weeks. Secondly, I would like to share with you an Advent Family Calendar. This can be downloaded inside the Weekly Update Tab. Hopefully, it will offer you a way to build some great family memories.  

However your family celebrates this important season, I wish for a hopeful and healthy Advent for you and your family.

 


Yours in Christ, Mr. Michael Connell Principal
