The Season of Advent begins Sunday, Dec. 2. Advent, which comes from the Latin word for “arrival” or “coming,” is a four-week period of preparation, during which Christians recall 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 early years and this is one small thing we can do to bring a bit of advent joy to the Dining Hall.
If you’d like to contribute, we’ll be accepting mugs in the school’s front hall from Nov. 27 to Dec. 14. Please contact Patty Gorman if you have any questions.
