On Saturday, November 25, 2017, we had a get-together with girls here at our house in Torrent. The girls began to arrive at 11:00am. We sang songs for a while until all of the girls arrived. Once they were all there, we went to the chapel to begin the get-together with a moment of prayer. In that time with Jesus, we got ready to spend the day learning how prepare ourselves to live Advent well.
After prayer, we went to the dining room to do a craft that consisted in making four boxes decorated with Advent colors. We put a resolution inside the boxes so that we can do one each week. Later we played a game, and then ate lunch.
After lunch we had a meeting, where we learned more about Advent and about how to prepare ourselves to live it well so that we will be ready to receive Jesus at Christmas.
To finish off the get-together we had a cooking workshop in which we made some rice krispy treats. We ask The Lord and Our Lady that, in this time of Advent that the Church gives us, we may open wide our hearts to welcome the Baby Jesus.
