Principal’s Message: Week of December 14th, 2014

Third Week of Advent

Dear Friends of St. Luke’s,

 "The Mighty One has done great things for me, and Holy is His name." ~ Luke 1:49

We are at the halfway mark now. The journey we began two weeks ago at the start of Advent continues. We wait. We pray. We prepare ourselves to receive the Christ Child.

Like you, I am doing many of the things people do this time of year... writing cards, making plans to visit with loved ones, putting up the crèche and wrapping a gift or two. But I'm also praying a little more and reflecting on Advent as a journey of the soul.

Where is the journey taking us? Closer to God, I believe, and closer to one another. Once we fully understand the gift of the Christ Child—that God is among us with the promise of eternal life—the only thing we can do is share this Good News with the world! That is the joy we have in our hearts and why we can't wait for Christmas Day.

What a week ahead with this being the final one before Christmas vacation- our students will not be returning to school until January 5th!!!

This week’s highlight, of course, is the Christmas Pageant which will take place on Thursday evening at 6:30 pm. Friday is a full day of school & our students may wear pajama’s with the Student Senate offering a Pancake Breakfast!!. I am so impressed with our Student Senate this year!! Daycare is being offered so many of you can have some special time to do some Christmas shopping!

I pray this reflection brings you closer to the beauty of Advent and the Nativity. In a quiet corner of your heart, make room for the Child, Our Lord and Savior. Christmas is almost here.

 

Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad, Happy New Year
