Advent -- A time of waiting

 Each year the students begin the week with the lighting of the advent candles. This is done in the school hallway. On the third week of Advent, the wreath and candles are moved to the chapel of the old Ursuline Convent. With the sun pouring in through the windows, the first and second graders lit the candles.

 Following the bible readings the students offer their intentions. Their prayers cover a wide variety of topics, and always come from the heart.
