Advent: Preparing for the Coming of Jesus
Sunday, 6 December marked the second week of Advent – The week of Peace. In the second week of Advent we are reminded to prepare a way for the Lord. As we light the second candle on our Advent wreath let us remember that Jesus is the light of our world. May we always prepare a way for him in our lives as we work towards praying more, giving more and loving more to live in peace with others like Jesus, the Prince of Peace, showed us.
God of Advent, during this season, give light to our eyes and peace to our hearts to make room for the coming of Jesus into our lives once again. May the Lord find us watching and waiting in joy when he comes. Help us to share the peace of this season with everyone we meet and be the living Jesus in our world today.
Love In A Box
On 20 November the Year 4 hosted a Pyjama Day to raise money for SPC’s Love In A Box. On this day families were asked to donate a Gold coin and I am pleased to announce that we raised $830.70.
This money has been used to purchase books as Christmas gifts for children housed in emergency accommodation provided by Aprila Rise to open on Christmas Morning.
Thanks to all the families for contributing to this Christmas Initiative helping others to spread love, joy and peace this Advent and Christmas.
This week classes will be celebrating the end of the school year giving thanks to God for the amazing community we have here at St Peter Chanel who worked together during this unusual year. Liturgies will be held at various times on Tuesday and Wednesday.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your ongoing support in the faith development of your children. I wish you all a very happy and holy Christmas and look forward to continuing this journey of faith with you all in 2021.
