Kindergartens Advent Festival

10 December 2022

At the end of each year in the Kindergarten we celebrate our Advent Festival with a beautiful and very moving sharing of our Christmas Circle. The angelic voices of the children accompanied by simple heartfelt gestures tell the story of Mother Mary’s journey as she receives both the heavenly and the earthly gifts that are bestowed on the Child that is born on Earth. The children have a natural affinity to this story that in many ways recapitulates the Birthday story that has been told for each child in the Kindergarten, a story in which each child hears of their unique journey to earth and of the heavenly and earthly gifts that are lovingly bestowed upon them as they are welcomed to their earthly abode. Big Kindergarten is also decorated with beautiful wax Christmas stars - as individual as the children that made them!
