Welcome to Advent

This is the season of preparation as we anticipate the miracle of Christmas. We prepare our hearts as well as our homes to be ready to welcome the Sweet Baby Jesus into our lives.

The next two weeks are full of activities that will help us prepare for Christmas by getting us into the spirit of the season. Please join us as we come together as a community to celebrate during this Advent season.

Details of the events are below. Please make every effort to participate in all of these events. It is important, especially, that families attend the Christmas Pageant as each student has a role in the play!

If there is anything we can do for you, please don't hesitate to ask. As alway, we are here to serve you!
