At our student retreat last Friday, the Second Grade presented a skit on the ancient Advent tradition called the Jesse Tree, which highlights key people in Jesus' "family tree."
I invite you to take a look at our Jesse Tree in the school hallway. All the ornaments were made by our teachers and staff. Each one represents an ancestor of Jesus or a prophet that foretold His coming. We can learn important life lessons by getting to know the ancestors of Jesus, and a Jesse Tree is a fun, visual way your family can prepare for Jesus' coming during Advent. For more information visit www.loyolapress.com and search "Jesse Tree." Have a blessed Advent!
