My prayer for you is your advent season is going well as you prepare for the coming of our Lord. At SMSA, we have been preparing with Christmas concerts, a day of reconciliation for grades 2 – 8 and multiple service projects.
Thank you for your attendance and support during this time of year. I appreciate your partnership and generosity of time, talent and treasure.
One of our biggest service projects is for Brenna. Friday, December 20, 2019 we will be having a snack and movie day to help with our cause and support for Brenna. We are asking for a suggested donation of $3.
Last weekend my family was selling student made Christmas cards for Brenna at the end of Mass. One gentlemen approached us and told his story about how his family was a beneficiary of this service project a while back for his son. He stated, “I don’t know what I would have done without the help of SMSA.” He continued, “Now it’s my turn to give back and Merry Christmas.” He then bought a few cards and left with a twinkle in his eye and a beautiful smile on his face.
I left feeling a sense of pride for our students and how they change the world by taking time to create one card at a time, and making the time to care even if they don’t get to see the end result. What an amazing gift kids give us to reflect upon during Christmas.
