Dear Parents and Guardians,
The third week of Advent invites us to prepare for the coming of Our Lord through the word and actions of joy. The third Sunday of Advent is also known as Gaudete Sunday. It is an important reminder of the joy that is ours in knowing the power of love in our lives. Take some time this week and thank someone for being part of the love in your life. For where love is, Jesus can be found.
A special thank you to all of the students at SMSA P3 – 8. Each day you bring joy to SMSA and to me personally. It’s a joy to watch you grow, learn, and become the best versions of yourselves through experiencing failures and successes. Both as important as the other to work in beautiful harmony. May all of you and all families have a Merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year.
Throughout this Advent season, I pray joy will be part of your journey towards becoming closer to Christ when Christmas day arrives.
