Come, Lord Jesus, Come!

Come, Lord Jesus, Come!
Students in Miss Therres' 2nd class and Sr. Noel's 3rd grade class at St. John the Baptist School in Vermillion lead the first prayer service of the Advent season. The all-school assembly for the PreK-6th grade school included singing hymns, reading scripture and offering prayers and petitions. Each week the students will light an additional candle on the school's Advent wreath, symbolizing the preparation and wait for the birth of the Christ child. Advent lasts for four weeks, from December 1 to 25 in 2013.  The season of Advent is also the start of the liturgical year in the Roman Catholic Church and begins on a different date each year.
