December Happenings:

Season of Advent

On December 3rd, the AHA school community will gather in prayer to mark the beginning of Advent. We will reflect on “walking in the light” and we will be challenged to think of ways to be light for others during Advent. We encourage all members of our community not to overlook the beauty and peace of the Advent season in the rush of Christmas and to think of alternative gift giving ideas like our Adopt A Teacher program in Haiti with the SSNDs and Beyond Borders.

 

A Prayer for Advent
Lord Jesus,
Master of both the light and the darkness,
send your Holy Spirit upon our preparations for Christmas.
We who have so much to do
seek quiet spaces to hear your voice each day.
We who are anxious over many things
look forward to your coming among us.
We who are blessed in so many ways
long for the complete joy of your Kingdom.
We, whose hearts are heavy
seek the joy of your presence.
We are your people,
walking in darkness, yet seeking the light.
To you we say, “Come, Lord Jesus!
