Our Advent Angel tree is up! Lawrence Parish participates in Jubilee Christmas which is Saturday, December 8th. As a school, our part is to collect stocking stuffers for this day. Today, students picked an angel with an item listed. If you are able, please have the item to school by Friday, December 7th. Thank you so much for your generosity in helping other families during this Advent Season…..which begins this Sunday!
Advent has a twofold character:
- as a season to prepare for Christmas when Christ’s first coming to us is remembered;
- as a season when that remembrance directs the mind and heart to await Christ’s Second Coming at the end of time.
Advent is thus a period for devout and joyful expectation.
