December 1st- 1st Sunday of Advent
In the Catholic Church, Advent is a period of preparation during the four Sundays before Christmas. The word Advent comes from the Latin advenio, "to come to," and refers to the coming of Christ. There are many wonderful rituals surrounding Advent. I have attached an Advent calendar for next week with some daily reminders, activities and prayers to do with your children .
I wish you all a blessed Advent.

Loose Change for Soyapango: Members of the Parish Twinning committee recently visited the students to talk about our twin School of St. Joseph the Worker in Soyapango, El Salvador. Let's remember to keep collecting loose change, to recycle our water bottles for change, and most importantly to keep these children and their families in our daily thoughts and prayers.
