Dear Families,

The Season of Advent is upon us! 

           Now, as a Catholic community, we have a more focused reflection on the true virtues of Christian life.  The virtue we will discover during the month of December is love.  It is love above all other virtues that Christ most cherished.  Advent is a time of waiting, a time of anticipation and hope, a time for self-reflection and prayer, and a time for faith renewal.

We are reminded that to wait for the coming of our saviour, Jesus Christ and to be fully alive in Him by persevering in times of challenge and reflecting on new ways to become the best version of ourselves.  During this season of Advent, how can we 'pay it forward' and actively engage in 'random acts of kindness'?  Let us move from darkness to light. As a testament to the joy and love in our community we are sharing small luminaries as a symbol of how our faithful community members really are the "light of Christ" in our beautiful community.

Please take time to share the blessings of Advent with your child(ren) and we hope to see you at one of our community events during this sacred season.

Have a blessed Advent; be the light!

John McCarroll
