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!
