Message from HFS Open Arms Mission Club
Our December focus is on Mary, the first to believe in Christ! The first to make a place for Him in the world! Who better than She to guide us in our waiting as we long for the peace which was the message of the first Christmas.
Students and teachers are asked to pray the Rosary, or perhaps just a decade of the Rosary, during December in your HFS classrooms or with your family at home.
A bulletin board display is in the school lobby to show Jesus' Birthday! Gift bags for every grade are placed on the bulletin board and we ask that every time a prayer of the Rosary to Mary is shared, the student will fill out a small tag with his/her name, and place it in the gift bag that shows the grade level.
Open Arms Mission Club will count how many times we, as a school, prayed the Rosary and offered prayers to Mary during the 15 school days in December.
Please join us in our prayers to Mary to be peacemakers- in our families, in our neighborhoods, and in our world.
