Pictures and Park
A big thanks to the PTA for sponsoring our viewing of the Grinch last week and ice-blocks at Anderson’s Park afterwards. Due to mixed messages from the cinema the pop corn did not happen in this instance, but Maria and Shane O’Donnell donated to St Vincent de Paul on our behalf which is a very worthy gesture at this time of the year and much needed by families. Also thanks for the ice-blocks today at our final assembly.

Week 9: 10-14 December Second week of Advent: Peace

The Jessie Tree
A popular tradition during the Advent Season is the Jesse Tree. This tree, named for the father of David, is one that is decorated throughout the Advent Season with symbols of biblical people that are historically associated with or came before, the birth of Jesus Christ. This can include people such as Abraham, Noah, and Moses, as well as Mary and Joseph. By decorating this tree, children can be reminded of historical biblical figures and can also be taught about the preparatory nature of the Advent Season.

Week 10: December 17- 20 Third week of Advent: Joy
The Third Sunday of Advent, also known as Gaudete Sunday, calls for the lighting of the first two candles, as well as the third candle of the Advent Wreath. The candle is known as Joy. On this day, rose-coloured vestments are usually worn and the Bible passages read all relate to St. John the Baptist.

Happy Holidays and Blessed and joy filled Christmas season.

Congratulations to Ella Dempster who received the Charism Award last week and all the children who received certificates.
