First Week of Advent

A few years back, Michael Toomey '14 and his dad Bill constructed a giant outdoor Advent wreath for us.  The candles are PVC pipes and they found a way to run electricity through them for the light bulbs.  We place the wreath outside each Advent and our school community gathers outside each Monday for a brief prayer and to "light" the candles.  Today we gathered for the first week of Advent and our prayer was:
Lord our God,
we praise you for your Son, Jesus Christ:
he is Emmanuel, the hope of the peoples,
he is the wisdom that teaches and guides us,
he is the Savior of every nation.
Lord God,
let your blessing come upon us
as we light the candles of this wreath.
May the wreath and its light
be a sign of Christ’s promise to bring us salvation.
May he come quickly and not delay.
