San Felipe de Neri School 11-27-17

'Tis the Season

As the season of Advent approaches, San Felipe de Neri School is in full holiday swing. Our students are preparing for our annual Christmas play, Just a Little Christmas, embracing service projects for our Old Town community Holiday Stroll, and learning the meaning of Advent.

As we prepare for the many events, let us pray together for one another and our families. Throughout the year of 2017, some of our school families have lost loved ones; we pray for a healing heart, and some families have welcomed new family members; we pray in thanksgiving for God's blessings. As a prayerful community, we are strong.

Luminaria Service

We are in need of many volunteers to help with our service project. These hours could be used toward the family service hours for this school year.

Friday Morning- At 8:30 a.m., students, teachers, and parents will join together to fill the luminaria bags and place them around the Old Town community. We will meet in the plaza. Please send an e-mail, call, or Pass.A.Note (PAN) the office or myself if you'll be able to help.

Friday Night- At 4:00 p.m. we'll begin to light the candles in the luminarias. We need adults to help light the candles. Many hands make light work!

Saturday Morning- At 8:00 a.m. the lumanrias will be collected and stored for Christmas Eve. Students and adults are needed to help collect the lumanirias.
