First and Second Class Assembly
We had our November assembly last week
Opening Advent Prayer
O Jesus the source of all wisdom.
The one who will show the way of peace.
Be the light that burns so bright, lighting up our lives.
Prepare for the one who is coming.
Let us welcome him into our hearts.
Welcome from Mr Reidy
In our assembly today we are going to talk about advent. We know that God is with us at all times. We know that God was with us in the brightness of Summer, in the freshness of Spring and in the golden colours of Autumn. We know that God is with us now this Winter. The end of November is the beginning of Advent. Advent means arrival and it is the season of waiting and preparing for the birth of Jesus. There are four Sundays leading up to Advent. The first candle in the Advent wreath symbolises hope. The second candle represents peace. The third candle symbolises joy and the fourth candle symbolises love. The last candle is lit on Christmas Day. The circle of the wreath reminds us of God. His endless mercy which has no beginning and no end. The evergreen branches and leaves symbolise the everlasting life which God gives us. During Wintertime long ago people would light candles on wheel shaped bundles of evergreen. The candle light gave comfort to people at the darkest time of the year.
Rob, Hannah and Leon from Ms Doran’s class read three prayers about Advent for us.
