Advent = Giving

Advent is a time of giving. It is in this spirit that St. Justin School hosts its annual Advent Novena, a nine day journey of prayer and reflection. Throughout the nine days, each class (K – 8) has an opportunity to lead a prayer service. Students are asked to donate items such as socks, toiletries, jackets, blankets, books, and games, which are in turn, distributed to families in need through our very own Community Ministry. It is a time for the students to reflect on the many blessings they have been given and to heed Jesus’ teachings in Matthew 25:40 where it is written, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”
