Principal's Corner - Advent is upon us

Dear Community,

Advent is a joyous time of the year.  It is the season of expectation of the Christ, and is somewhat penitential in tone.  It is four weeks long, or slightly less, the first two focusing on Jesus' final coming as Lord and Judge.  The final eight days anticipate his coming in history (Christ-mas).  Since the tenth century, the first Sunday of Advent has marked the beginning of the Church year in the West.

The Christmas Season is the celebration of Jesus' birth and epiphany (manifestation).  It  is second in significance only to the Easter Season.  Feast Days in the Christmas Season:

Christmas-December 25

Holy Family-The Sunday after Christmas

Mary, Mother of God-January 1

Epiphany-The Sunday after January 1

Baptism of the Lord-The Sunday after Epiphany

The staff and I wish everyone a Merry Christmas!!!
