Advent is a season of preparation for
Christmas, and the Advent Wreath celebrates a reminder of what truly matters at
Christmas. It is a time of joyful
waiting and expectation. Just as the

arrival. Let us take the time to prepare
for His coming and not hurry the season along too quickly. Anticipation of the holiday can be just as
exciting as the holiday itself…
Please Support Our New Fundraiser… AmazonSmile
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic
way to support our school. The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the

On your first visit to AmazonSmile
you will need to select Divine Wisdom Catholic Academy to
receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Support
our school by starting your shopping at http://smile.amazon.com/ch/27-0362454
