Advent is a period of preparation, extending over four Sundays before Christmas. The word Advent mean "to come to" and refers to the coming of Christ. By spending time in prayer as a school and as a family, we can prepare our hearts and minds to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ on Christmas day. Through the weeks of Advent we will be reflecting on the themes of each week: Hope, Peace, Joy and Love.
Week One – Hope
Week Two – Peace
Week Three- Joy
Week Four - Love
