Preparation time

the Inland Register

(From the Jan. 12, 2006 edition of the Inland Register)

During Advent, students at St. Mary School, Spokane Valley, prepared to celebrate Christmas by attending prayer services, adopting families, collecting items for Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery and creating a craft that is symbolic of the waiting and preparation time of advent. All of the school’s students gathered in the gym and were divided into groups to work on the project. This year’s project was a mobile inscribed with “Our time of waiting” and decorated with symbols of Christmas. Each child attached stars and hearts, one for each of the four weeks of advent and wrote on each some thing they will work on to prepare themselves for Christmas.
