Students at Montini Catholic High School in Lombard gathered in the school's gymnasium to attend a special Advent/Christmas Prayer service on Friday, December 15th. The service is an annual tradition at the Lasallian school, and is held to commemorate Advent as a time of waiting and preparation for the celebration of Christmas.
The Lasallian vocation to compassion, commitment and togetherness is being lived out in various ways throughout the Advent season and every season at Montini Catholic. The students just completed a successful Golden Gobbler Thanksgiving Food Drive in November and Adopt-A-Family gift-drive in December.
"Advent is a time of waiting - a time for us to reflect more intensely on our personal relationship with Jesus and how we will serve one another," said Blanchette.
