A Prayer for Christmas
At Christmas, may God open your heart to love, your mind to wonder, and your life to the Divine presence. May you experience God's peace for your troubles, God's forgiveness for your guilt, God's presence for your loneliness, God's light for your path, God's guidance for your journey, and God's joy for your life.
May you know the hope of the Christmas season, the rejoicing and celebration of carols, the caring found under the roof, the sharing found in giving, the Good News proclaimed by the angels, the anticipation and excitement of the prophets, the assurance that "all is well" found in the Scriptures and the wonder of God's love found in Jesus.
May you leave with the twinkle of bright lights in your eyes, the sound of Christmas ringing in your ears, a vision of the Saviour in your mind, the spirit of the season in your memory, the joy of the season in your life, the faith of the Christ child in your soul, and the message of the season always on your lips. Amen.
Christmas Message from Admin
Advent is upon us and it brings with it a time of preparation, joy and anticipation. Celebrating Advent involves spending time in spiritual preparation for the coming of Jesus Christ at Christmas.
It is important to focus our attention on the true meaning of Christmas by showing small acts of kindness, caring and love toward one another. Let us be reflective in our hearts as we prepare to celebrate the coming of Jesus.
The community of St. Vincent de Paul continues to 'Search and you will find'. We continue to focus on prayer and getting ourselves ready for the birth of our Saviour. It was wonderful to see our students and community engage in our annual Christmas concerts. The students did amazing and we are very proud of them. A HUGE THANK YOU to Mrs. Closson and Ms. Simcic for all their work in getting our students prepared. We have our Advent Mass at the school on Thursday, December 20th. It is always so great to see the support of our entire community as we celebrate together.
Last day of classes is Friday, December 21st with dismissal at 2:50 p.m. School re-opens Monday, January 7th, 2019. On behalf of all the staff at St. Vincent de Paul School, wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday season and new year filled with much love and happiness!
