We took our 2nd – 8th graders to an Advent Reconciliation prayer service and then after they had the opportunity to receive the sacrament.
A few 8th grade boys enacted the Gospel story of the Prodigal Son while teachers took leading parts in the prayer service.
As these pictures depict, our students were reverent, contrite, and eager to receive God’s forgiveness and mercy.
It was a beautiful experience – the presence of the Holy Spirit was intense! And, it made me just love more and more ministering in a Catholic school!
May we continue through this Advent season focused on the Christ Child as we continue to work towards growing closer and closer to Him.
