The Week Ahead

Welcome to the Advent season. This means many things to me: Christmas Basket Project, Christmas is getting close, and Christmas break will be here soon. It also means these next 13 school days are going to be crazy. We have schedule changes the next 3 Wednesdays. Those schedules are given below. Please be sure the students are aware of these changes.

We have 17 days (4 after break) of school before semester exams. Christmas break can be a good time for our struggling students to get caught up. Please be communicating with those students and their parents about what they can be doing over the next month.

I shared the doc for the 3-minute walk-through procedure I hope to start this week. Remember to ignore me if I come in your room. I know it won't be hard to do it.

Have a great week!

Morning Prayer This Week

12/3 Loving God, I sense that all is your creation and everything, and all of us,

are being drawn back toward your loving heart.

Help me to be a person of peace, to speak about it in an uneasy world,

And to live it among the people you have put into my life every day.

Light in me a desire to prepare for your coming to stand in the darkness,

Waiting, eager, and filled with joy.

12/4 God of forgiveness,

I turn to you in my great weakness and beg for your help.

Let me feel the joy growing in my heart as I anticipate your coming.

I hear the message of the prophets of old

and know that the Messiah will bring new life and new ways of living.

From the humbleness of my life, help me to grow and bloom

and hear the words that will change the world.

12/5 Lord of all,

you are a God of plenty, a Lord who provides for us in our need.

As I begin these early days of Advent

help me to believe that you know what I need.

Give me the courage to listen to your voice

and the freedom to open my heart to the graces you are

offering me to place my trust in you.

12/6 God of strength and protection,

I turn to you because I need help.

I long to be free enough to trust that I can lean on you.

But I become afraid. Help me to trust in you, Lord.

Your strength and power are a gentle place of protection.

Be a safe refuge when I am being trampled.

I long for your help, your protecting care.

Help to deliver me from the cold loneliness of these dark nights.

12/7 Jesus, protector, I long for your advent.

The promise of new light is there if only I can believe.

Protect me from dangers and lead me through the gloom and darkness

to the joy I so long to find in you.

Lift me from my lowly sins and give me the promise of salvation with no more shame,

only the light and saving grace of your love.

Let the ancient dream be fulfilled in you and peace come to this life and world.

Mass on Wednesday

We have a K-12 Mass with Bishop Zinkula at 9:30 on Wednesday. Please be sure to accompany your students to the gym and remind them to be quiet as they proceed to the gym.

Individual PD on Thursday
