Students lead Advent services

BURLINGTON - The third and seventh graders at Mater Christi School in Burlington hosted four prayer services, one during each of the four weeks of Advent for the rest of the school and for any adults who were able to attend.

The services provided the students with the opportunity to pass on traditions, and share prayers, songs, and scriptures about Jesus' birth. The main purpose of the prayer services was to help the children and adults prepare their hearts, homes, and classrooms for the Christian tradition of the birth of Christ. The themes for the services were Hope, Dec. 4; Faith, Dec. 12; Joy, Dec. 19, and Peace and Love, Dec. 23.
