Final activity for 2016, Friday 9th December – Las Posadas!

December 6, 2016 § Leave a comment

Hi everyone.

This year has been very busy, our group has grown and our children have all shown much talent, enthusiasm and discipline in their approach to their homeschool work. Christmas and the end of the school year is almost upon us already!  The concert was a revelation and we very much thank Tanya for being such an expert and gracious MC, as well as all the performers for helping to make the day a big success.

For our final activity day for 2016, Therese will help us to keep up our traditional Mexican Advent celebration, “Las Posadas”.  If you recall from previous years we’ll start by singing a traditional carol (translated), followed by praying the rosary together, then feasting!

GLORIA IN EXCELSIS DEO!
Las Posadas: Let us join the angels, the shepherds, the inn-keepers, wise men and saints, to invite the Holy Family into our homes and hearts this Christmas.

It’s all to help us invite the Holy Family into our homes and hearts, so can everyone please along your Rosary beads and a plate to share.

Finally, thank you to each of you, for helping to make each activity day a time  where we can all relax & enjoy the company of like-minded mothers, where our children can enjoy informal activities, build lasting friendships and be introduced to new ideas and new opportunities to grow in holiness, wisdom and knowledge.  It has been a year of great blessings.

I hope you can make it to our final activity day, and I hope that Christmas brings you and yours great joy.

Final activity for 2013, Friday 13th December – Las Posadas!

Hi everyone.

This year has been so eventful and busy yet it has gone by so quickly! Fr Corrigan was a wonderful, supportive and encouraging guest at our most recent activity day and we very much thank Michelle for helping to arrange the visit of this holy young priest.

For our final activity day for 2013, Therese will introduce us to a traditional Mexican Advent celebration, “Las Posadas”.  I’m told we’ll start by singing a traditional carol (translated), followed by praying the rosary together, then feasting – Mexican style!
