Dear 3rd Grade Parents,
This second week of Advent we focus on faith. We look at the strong faith Juan Diego and St. Lucy had in God. We work on doing good deeds for Jesus as our gift to him on Christmas.
The Advent Season is upon us. This is a very special time as we are preparing for the birth of Jesus. We will be praying the St. Andrew Novena three times each day to seize the moment as we patiently wait. Here is the prayer.
“Hail and blessed be the hour and moment in which the Son of God was born Of the most pure Virgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in the piercing cold. In that hour vouchsafe, O my God, to hear my prayer and grant my desires, through the merits of Our Savior Jesus Christ, and of His Blessed Mother.”
“Fantastic Mr. Fox” reading project is due on Monday.
