This coming Sunday marks the first Sunday of Advent for 2017. Advent is a time when we are preparing our souls for the coming of Jesus at Christmas. We will be challenging all of our students to actively prepare themselves for Jesus. This may mean attending confession, being extra nice to friends and classmates at school, praying daily including Christian Meditations, or making more of an effort to help those in need this holiday season – we can all do something to prepare ourselves for Jesus.
At Canadian Martyrs, we focus on “Our 3 R’s: Resiliency, Respect and Responsibility”. Advent is a great time to focus on being respectful and responsible! This will help us all to welcome Jesus at Christmas and ensure that the holiday season is not just about presents, but people.
Have a blessed Advent Season from all of us here at Canadian Martyrs!
