Christmas at Sacred
The Christmas Fair on December 1 was the official start to the Christmas Season at Sacred Heart, followed by the Mass to celebrate the beginning of Advent, on December 4. This is a busy time for all, but, most importantly, a time to celebrate the birth of Jesus, the spirit of giving, and the importance of spending time with loved ones and those who need our love the most.
This is what the rest of the season will look like this year at Sacred:
The annual Christmas concert will be held in the chapel on Thursday, December 13 at 7:00 pm. The show will feature the Secondary II bands, the concert band, the choir, as well as a small senior ensemble. Join us for an evening of musical celebration! Donations for the building of a New Music Room will be graciously accepted at the door.
Students are working with the support of Mme Gauthier to bring us four vignettes about this time of year, under the theme of a grandmother telling her grandchildren these comical stories. This annual Sacred Heart tradition closes out the year.
A full-school mass will be held on the last day of school, Friday, December 21, in celebration of Advent.
