Principal's Message: Week of December 9, 2018
2nd Week of Advent

Dear St. Luke Families,

Here we are in the second week of Advent and so much is happening here at school- we are in a time of anticipation, the anticipation of the birth of our Savior!! On Wednesday of this week we have our monthly minimum day and in the afternoon the staff will be gathering together with Father Marc to participate in an Advent Reflection which we are all looking forward to- then, on Friday, staff and students come together for our annual Christmas Luncheon that Ms Kristin Chavez facilitates!!

Rejoice!  

St. Paul commends this in the upcoming second reading “Brothers and sisters: rejoice in the Lord always. I shall say it again, rejoice.” The word for rejoice in Latin is gaudete, so quite naturally this Sunday is called Gaudete Sunday. Why all this glee? Are we finally getting a break from somber Advent? Yes. But there is more to it than that. Remember that Advent is like a retreat that the worldwide Church is making. In this third week we will consider our lives in the context of the great beauty God has put in us and around us.

Can we let it in?

The readings for this coming week are as follows:

 

Reading I: Zephaniah 3:14-18a
Responsorial Psalm Isaiah 12:2-3, 4, 5-6
Reading II: Philippians 4:4-7
Gospel: Luke 3:10-18
