At St. Gabriel this year our focus for Advent is the Jesse Tree: “A SHOOT SHALL COME OUT FROM THE STUMP OF JESSE, AND A BRANCH SHALL GROW OUT OF HIS ROOTS.” Isaiah 11:1
Our school day during Advent will begin with prayer and a different symbol of the Jesse tree explained each day. Some classes will also continue with the tradition of the advent wreath. We will end our Advent celebration on Friday, December 20th with a prayer service at 12:45 p.m. in church.
We have been invited to a SLU Basketball game for this season. The school has received 1000 tickets at no cost to our families. A reservation form was sent home in the Wednesday folder on October 30th. We ask that you return your form by Wednesday, November 13th. Tickets will be given on a first come basis. Tickets will be sent home before the Thanksgiving holiday.
