“O Come Let Us Adore Him!”




During this Advent season we remember God’s gift to us, baby Jesus, and how we should share God’s love with one another.  Take time out of this busy month to pray, read Christmas stories, attend an extra mass, bake cookies, or sing songs as a family to spread that love.   Our classroom will be sharing God’s gift of love as well!
