And suddenly there was a multitude of the heavenly host with the angel, praising God and saying:
“Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rest.”—Gospel of Saint Luke 2:13-14
Friday Masses During Advent
Friday, December 7, 10: 30 a.m. and Friday, December 14, 10:30 a.m.
Are you home for the holidays? Please join us at Church of the Assumption for a student-led Friday Mass, which marks the end of each school week. All of you, our beloved alumni, help us make the celebration of Mass even more special, during this season of peace, Advent.
Mrs. McClurg’s first-graders will lead Friday’s Mass, on December 7. The Advent theme will be Hope.
Mrs. Thomas’ fourth-grade students will lead Friday’s Mass, on December 14. The Advent Theme will be Peace.
All of you remember the joy of student-led Masses, especially during Advent, the weeks of preparation for and anticipation of Our Savior’s birth. You’ll be warmly greeted by students in the Gathering Space of your church–along with Father Scott, Principal Anderson, and your teachers. You’ll hear students doing the readings and Prayers of the Faithful and see them bringing up the gifts. And, you won’t want to miss the Advent hymns and pipe organ, with music liturgy led by the talented collaboration of Mrs. Liza Beshara (see below) and Frederick Bayni Malabot.
We welcome community members and Church of the Assumption parishioners at these Friday Masses. And, we’d love to welcome you home!
See you at Mass.
Friday, December 14, 2018, 7 p.m.
Come hear the voices of Assumption Catholic School! You’re invited to the annual Christmas Program, Friday, December 14, 7 p.m. at Church of the Assumption. Each grade will perform a hymn, and the eighth grade will present an original Christmas play.
Music teacher Mrs. Liza Beshara–who married ACS alumnus Cameron Beshara (’05), son of preschool teacher Mrs. Lorri Beshara–explains, “Students should experience the power of sung prayer and the joy of expressing their faith through music.”
“We chose Assumption because it encourages and enforces the same values of kindness, respect, hard work, and integrity that we foster at home. We love the community and especially the teachers who truly know each student and work with the individual child to bring out their full potential.” — Stephanie Wolf, alumna ’97
