The Season of Advent begins Sunday, Dec. 1. Advent, which comes from the Latin word for "arrival" or "coming," is a four-week period of preparation for the recalling of the birth of Jesus at Christmas. For a special advent project, St. Mary’s is once again collecting clean, chip-free, new or used mugs for the St. Francis Dining Hall. St. Mary's students have volunteered at St. Francis since its beginning years. The collection of mugs, is one small thing we can do to bring a bit of Advent joy to the folks that visit the Dining Hall. If your family would like to contribute, please bring your mugs to the front hall between Nov. 25 and Dec. 17.
