Advent marks a period of preparation for the coming of Christmas and the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, the Light of the World. This year our Advent theme is "the Holy Family". During this Advent season, we are going to focus on the importance of our own families, as we focus on the Holy Family of St. Joseph, St. Mary, and Jesus.
Thank you for the light of Christ
during this Advent season.
May we ready our hearts for the celebration of your birth at Christmas
as we focus on the Holy Family.
Help us also remember those who are less fortunate than us
during this time of Advent.
Bless our family, extended family,
and family of faith.
Through Christ our Lord,
South Entrance - Ms. Mercier
