“For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given.”

                                                                                Isaiah 9:6-7

 Peace and Greetings:

As Christians, December marks the time we begin preparing for the birth of the Christ child in our lives. We ushered in the season of Advent last Friday night at our annual Light Up St. Paul event. Many thanks to everyone who planned and attended the evening. The participation was one of our best in years!

I invite you to still find time to celebrate this holiday season with your St. Paul family.

Art Show & Christmas Concert (Thursday, December 15th at 6:30 pm)

Christmas Mass at St. Gregory the Great Church (Thursday, December 22nd at 11:15 am)

Note that this is a change to our original school calendar. Friday, December 16th will be a noon dismissal. Busses will be available. Our faculty will be involved in a special advent faith formation/retreat in the afternoon.

This is a reminder that our Christmas vacation begins on Thursday, December 22nd at 2:12 pm. Classes will resume on Tuesday, January 3, 2023.

Juniors and their parents are strongly encouraged to attend Junior College Night sponsored by the School Counseling Office this Wednesday, December 7th at 6:00 pm in the auditorium. Several college representatives will be here to share their perspective and answer questions regarding the college process.

Our second Placement Exam for the 2023-2024 school year is scheduled for this Saturday, December 10th at 8:00 am. It’s not too late for prospective students to register by contacting Ms. Mone: Thank you for serving as ambassadors for St. Paul in your town and workplace. Nothing is more reassuring for prospective families than to hear directly from current St. Paul students and parents.

A shout out to everyone who contributed to the United Way Toy Drive last week. Not surprisingly, we collected hundreds of toys for local organizations to distribute on our behalf as well as supporting Bristol First Responders. The generosity of our students/families inspires me all the time!

St. Paul is blessed as a faith community to live the gift of Christmas every day. He is the reason we exist. On behalf of all of us at St. Paul, I wish you and your family much joy, happiness and peace during this season and throughout the new year. Merry Christmas!

In the Spirit of St. Paul,
