Advent Morning Masses

Our Grades 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 classes are once again asked to attend 8:00 am Morning Masses during the season of Advent.   This is a wonderful way to start the day and allows our students to engage in a deeper appreciation of this season of waiting.  If students are unable to attend their scheduled date because of a conflict, then they are asked to attend another Mass that week.  Please see below for the scheduled dates. Thank you.

Monday, December 2: Grade 5 and Grade 6
Wednesday, December 4: Grades 3 and 4 
Thursday, December 5: Grade 7

December 9: Grades 5, 6
December 11: Grades 3, 4 and 7

December 16: Grade 5, 6
December 18: Grades 3 and 4 
December 19: Grade 7
