Special Spiritual Events This Week
On Thursday, December 8, St. Augustine Prep will celebrate the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary with a school-wide Mass at 9:55 a.m. Parents and friends are welcome to attend. This Mass will take the place of the regular Wednesday school Mass, and class schedules for Wednesday and Thursday will be switched. Mary, under the title of the Immaculate Conception, is the patroness of the United States.
On Tuesday, December 6, all students will have the opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation. An Advent penance service will be held for each class year with time for individual reconciliation. Visiting priests, along with the Augustinians on staff, will be available for private confessions. All students are urged to take advantage of this opportunity to examine their lives in light of the gospel and to prepare themselves spiritually for the celebration of Christmas.
