The Season of Advent

Mr. Randy Bednar, Upper School Religion Teacher

Sixth and seventh grade religion students are learning about the season of Advent and the expectant waiting and preparation of the birth of Jesus. 

Sixth and seventh grade religion students are learning about the season of Advent and the expectant waiting and preparation of the birth of Jesus.  Students have viewed the video of the nativity story, and have talked about in class family traditions that occur in their households.  Class discussions have taken place about the significance of prayer and giving during this time of preparation for Christmas. Additionally, class discussions have involved the importance of the Advent wreath and the transformation that goes on in our own life, as we prepare for the coming of Jesus.
