Dear Parents and Guardians,
Our first Family Spiritual Evening will be held during the first week of Advent, on Wednesday, December 3, 2015. The evening will begin with a chili dinner, prepared and served by our teachers. We will meet in the gym where dinner will be served. Just bring your family to enjoy. We appreciate you, our parents, and welcome you in partnership during the spiritual development of your child(ren) throughout the year, but especially during this Advent season.
Following dinner, Mr. Hartwell will present a reflection on “Celebrating the Presence not the presents”. This short reflection will be followed up with age-appropriate discussion groups. The teachers will be leading the discussion groups. Everyone will then come together for an Advent family activity where the families will be given the supplies to make an Advent wreath for the home. The evening will begin at 5:30 and will finish no later than 7:30.
Please plan to join us for this evening of spiritual growth during the Advent season. We look forward to the opportunity to grow together as a family community in anticipation of the celebration of Christmas.
Please RSVP by November 30th, so we have enough supplies…
You may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating family name and number attending or send an email to your child’s primary teacher. Thank you for all you do in partnership with us in promoting our Catholic identity within our schools and families.
