Did you know…
…that on Sunday, December 3, we start the new Church Year? We start with the First Sunday of Advent, which is the season we prepare for the arrival of Jesus. We prepare to celebrate his first arrival, which took place on Christmas, and to prepare for his next arrival—we don’t know when that will be, but Jesus keeps telling us to always be ready! You will see that the priest now wears purple. Look around at Mass, and look for other signs of Advent you can see!
Be sure that you have put all of your child’s grade level events on your calendar! The children and at least on parent are expected to participate in the Café Julia and Family Gathering moments! Children preparing to receive the Sacraments MUST attend the workshops!
