Welcome to St. Brigid/Our Lady of Hope Regional School

Dear Families,

We are in the new liturgical year and the holy season of Advent - a time of preparation for Christmas - God becoming one of us!  There are many ways that we will celebrate the Season of Advent at our school.

Advent Wreath

Gathering and praying around the Advent Wreath is a traditional practice that takes place in Churches, homes, and in the classrooms of our school!  The circle shape of the wreath, which has no beginning or end, symbolizes the eternity of God.  The evergreens signify everlasting life.  Each of the four candles represents one of the Sundays of Advent.  The purple candles represent penance and preparation.  The pink candle, which is lit on the third Sunday of Advent, represents joy.  The third Sunday of Advent is also known as Gaudete Sunday.  Gaudete is Latin for “rejoice.”  

Bambinelli Sunday at St. Brigid’s

On the third Sunday of Advent, December 16 this year, we will celebrate Bambinelli Sunday.  You are invited to bring the baby Jesus figure from your home crèche scene to mass for a special blessing – a blessing to bring back to your homes and families.  This blessing will take place at the 9:15 am mass in the School Chapel (before Breakfast with Santa).

If you have any questions, please call the office or email pclagnaz@stbolh.org

My prayer is that you have some peace during this busy time of year. 

Yours truly,
Mr. Paul P. Clagnaz
Proud Principal
