ADVENT ACTIVITIES

We are excited for our Holy Name students to participate in our school-wide activities to celebrate the Advent season and prepare our hearts for Christmas.


Traveling Nativity Program

December 3rd - December 21st: Classroom Reflection

Through this program, our students will bring the Gospel of the Nativity of Our Lord to life by drawing closer to the individuals in the nativity scene who are witnesses of a life of faith and encounter with Jesus which our students can experience in their own lives.

Learn more and share in the experience with our Advent Traveling Nativity Program Parent Packet. The packet includes an introduction letter from our Retreat and Outreach Coordinator, a rotation schedule so you can follow along with your student's nativity experience, Holy Name Advent prayers, and sample reflections for each character from the nativity.


Advent Wreaths made with the Gift of Prayer

December 3rd - December 21st: Gift of Prayer Advent Wreaths posted near our school office

Through this activity, our students will engage in a prayerful experience including reflection on the Advent themes and how our prayers are powerful gifts. Our students individual prayers (personally written on printed "gifts") will come together to create a visual representation of an Advent wreath to inspire united prayer during the whole Advent Season.

It is beautiful to see a glimpse into the hearts of our students through their prayer intentions. Many students prayed for family members and friends. Some even prayed for the healing of specific illnesses that their fellow classmates endure. Our Holy Name students and community are a family of faith who supports and prays for one another with great hope.

Please unite with us in praying for our students intentions. Also, we encourage you to pray these Holy Name Advent Prayers with your family and to make your own Gift of Advent Prayer to post in your home or office to remind you to pray for those in need of hope, faith, joy, peace, and any other spiritual gift.
