If you were in attendance December 13, we are certain you would agree that this was once again a beautiful Advent Evening of Song and Prayer that our school celebrated. Just as last year, the church was filled! It was so beautiful to hear our children’s voices as they sang so passionately that evening!
Congratulations to Mr. Arntzen for his fantastic work preparing the songs, harmonies, and melodies with the students! A special thank you to all grades for their beautiful singing and to our teachers and staff, in particular Ms. O’Hara for her work planning and coordinating the event. A special thank you to Father Andrew and the Oblate Fathers, as well as to all the teachers, students, families, friends, and alumni who took time out of their busy pre-Christmas schedules to celebrate this special evening with us. Thank you to all for your generosity in supporting the Oblate Missions in Kenya, to which all funds raised at this wonderful event are directed.

During Advent, the school has a number of ways in which we try to be like Jesus and help those in need. By the last day of school before Christmas Break, December 21, St. Augustine School delivered countless items to and supported the Sancta Maria House, families in need, local Catholic charities, and the Oblate Missions. Christmas cards were also written and delivered to elderly patients at VGH not able to be home with family over Christmas. What a fantastic and wonderful way to celebrate Christmas by continuing the mission of Jesus and the work of the Church! Thank you to all who so generously donated to our Advent Giving initiatives! As we begin this new year, we want to continue, as a faith community, to answer God's question to us "What do you ask of me, Lord?" through acts of charity. Our post-Christmas work will involve the collection of non-perishable food items for the Food Bank through the months of January and into February.

Our first school mass of the new year was indeed a special one as Mme McLean and a selection of her French students prepared our first ever bilingual mass on the occasion of the Epiphany.

Thank you to Father Andrew for celebrating this mass, incorporating readings and blessings in French throughout. It was beautiful to hear our children, led by Mr. Arntzen, sing IL EST NÉ LE DIVIN ENFANT and LES ANGES DANS NOS CAMPAGNES to ring in 2019 and mark the Solemnity of the Epiphany as a faith community! Bravo, tout le monde!
