Reflection Corner: JESUS, the Human Face of God

CHRISTMAS is the feast of the presence of God. The birth of Jesus is not a fable! It is a historic event. In the face of little Jesus, we see the face of God who does not reveal himself in strength and power but in the weakness and frailty of a newborn baby. This is what our God is like - God comes in a child. This child reveals the tenderness of God’s love with which He surrounds each one of us. That is why we celebrate Christmas. Pope Francis

What a Wonder-Full Show!

Our Christmas Program was absolutely amazing! Thank you, everyone, for all the work that you did to make this year's production a huge success. Parents and community members who watched had nothing but great things to say about the program. Special thanks to Dominic Paris (director), Greg Roughley (technical director) and their crew for excellently weaving the pieces of the production together. And to all of you who made sure that our students knew and sang their songs as well as they did, thank you very, very, much!

Please bring a white elephant gift. Just check your closets and see if you have an item or two (unused of, course :-) that have been sitting there that may be of good use to other people.
