O Come, O Come Emmanuel

St. Columba Families,

It was great being in Mass today and the opening song was O Come, O Come Emmanuel! It is definitely my favorite Advent song. I love the reminders of all that Jesus was promised to be for us and how much anticipation the People of God had.

We are very much in the midst of that anticipation. I know we are all anticipating our upcoming break and Christmas and time with our families, but we still have plenty going on here at school! If possible, I request that you do your best to not pull your kids out of school early for vacation. The teachers will still be doing good teaching next week.

Finally, I hope to see all of you at our Annual Christmas Program on Wednesday, December 18th at 6pm! I think it is going to be our best one yet!

Here is a look ahead at the upcoming events on campus:

  • Monday, December 16:
  • Tuesday, December 17: Wear Jeans and a Red, White, or Green Shirt for $1 for Salvation Army
  • Wednesday, December 18: Christmas Program (6pm - Church)
