Family Advent Calendar

During the season of Advent, Christians across the globe prepare for and look forward to the coming of Christ.  These weeks leading up to Christmas mark a special time at Saint James School as our students and staff spend time focusing on the true spirit of the season: hope, peace, joy, and love.

As always, we encourage our families to also look beyond the commercial craziness of preparing for Christmas and consider delving more into the Advent journey.  Our religion series, Sadlier Religion, has put together a calendar of daily Advent activities that you can follow:  Family Advent Calendar .  Or, consider coming up with your own calendar of ideas that will get your family in the true Christmas spirit.

Should you wish to share pictures of your family participating in Advent-focused activities, please email them to and we will try to share them on our daily emails.
