Saint Aidan School – Williston Park Second Graders have the wonderful opportunity to attend Religion Class with Father Adrian in The Church of St. Aidan every Thursday!
Robustly Catholic Culture
Our schools had a wonderful week celebrating the beauty and excellence of Catholic education! Take a look below at some of our favorite moments, activities, and celebrations that were captured this week!
Sts. Philip & James School and Academy – St. James students are encouraged to be Apostles of Hope. In preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation, four students, so far, of the graduating class of 2023 have joined the Lector Ministry at Sts. Philip and James Parish.
In addition to throwing festive Christmas parties, making fun crafts, and performing in holiday concerts and plays, our students also spent the past few weeks fully entering into the beautiful season of Advent with beautiful liturgical celebrations, activities, and prayer!
In our faith, the month of December is not only a time of reflection and preparation for Advent and Christmas, but is also rich in feast days celebrating the lives of the saints and the Blessed Mother! Students on Long Island learned about St. Nicholas, the Immaculate Conception, St. Juan Diego, Our Lady of Guadalupe, and St. Lucy, and participated in various activities in celebration!
This first week of Advent was a festive one at our Catholic Schools. Across the region, students prepared for the coming of Jesus by adoring the Lord in the Eucharist, making fun crafts, creating parade floats, receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation, giving back to their community, and more!
