Holy Trinity Interparochial School 2011 Blue Ribbon School of Excellence
Dear God of hope,
As we light the candle(s) of this Advent wreath we remember all that you have done for us.
We thank you for sending your Son, Jesus, to be the light of the world.
Help us to prepare our hearts and our lives for the coming of Jesus. Amen
As the media assaults us with commercials and jingles about all of the things we “need” to get this Christmas, I hope you will use this simple prayer and an Advent wreath to bring your family back to the true joy of Christmas. As I read the teachers’ plan books this week, I repeatedly saw their efforts to keep Christ in Christmas through the lessons and activities with their students. Jesus’ birthday is a time of joy, love and peace in our faith and our families. As Fr. Frank Fano told the parishioners at St. Helens’ this Sunday, I hope you give you and your children the gift of time. Take time to decorate, bake, read Christmas stories, sing carols and enjoy the excitement and happiness with your children.
May you and your families have a Merry Christmas!
Leslie M. Lewis
Jesus’ Birthday Party, Wednesday, December 16, 6:30-7:30
I hope you and your children will come to the second annual Birthday Party for Jesus. It is a joyous evening of carols, cookies and cupcakes. Last year was an enormous success, celebrating the birthday of Jesus. What better way to teach the true reason for the season?
Reregistration for Current Holy Trinity Families
