Christmas Concert 2017

K4 and K5 Program

As in the past, the children in K4 and K5 are busy preparing for their special Christmas presentation. The program schedule will be as follows:

December 13, 2017

at

9:30 A.M.

in

 Tenpenny Hall

We ask that K4 wear Christmas Best; this means dresses, skirts, ties but please, no jeans or shorts or shirts with writing. School uniforms are always appropriate.

K5 attire will be different. If your child is a “star” or “angel”, they are encouraged to wear Christmas Best; all others will be in costume.

 

Grades 1, 2, 3 and 4 Program

These classes have also been working very hard to prepare for their program. This part of the program will be as follows:

December 13, 2017

at

6:30 P.M.

in

 Tenpenny Hall

Children in the program are to be in their classrooms no later than 6:10. As in the past, Christmas Best is the appropriate attire. Please choose shoes that will be safe as we will be on risers. There will be a 1:00 rehearsal which you are invited to attend if the evening time doesn’t fit your schedule. 

We look forward to seeing you on December 13, 2017. Any questions may be directed to the school office or Joanne Collins at jcollins@stgregsmil.org. 


Nativity Challenge
 
We invite you to accept our NATIVITY CHALLENGE!
This Advent we are challenging every parishioner to share their Catholic faith with the world through our NATIVITY CHALLENGE!
Here are the details:
  • Proudly set up a Nativity (or two or three!).  They can be big or little, fancy or simple, indoors and/or outdoors. 
  • Take a picture of your nativity and email it to mzakula@stgregsmil.org or message it to us on Facebook.  We can even copy your photo if you bring the hard copy of it to the parish office (for those without internet).
  • Each week we will feature the photos we receive on our Facebook page and/or on a display board.
  • On the THIRD weekend of Advent, bring your baby Jesus figurine to Mass with you.  This Sunday is known as Bambinelli Sunday in Italy and it involves blessing the baby Jesus figurines so that they are ready to be added to the Nativity on Christmas eve. 
  • Each week we will feature a Reflection related to the Nativity figurines in the bulletin. 
 If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact Michelle Zakula in the parish office!  It's going to be an exciting and prayerful Advent as we keep Christ at the center of our preparations in our parish and in our homes! 

 Dear Parents,

In context of the tragic events that have recently occurred in Las Vegas, as well as events occurring within our local communities, we have included some resources to help guide parents in talking to their children about violence. Our aim is to help students feel safe and secure in their daily environments. Part of this comes from open communication and allowing children to express their concerns and ask questions.

Today (10/4) our school community will participate in a prayer service on the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis was a peacemaker. Let us all pray for peace.
