Today, we took part in our Advent Retreat. We thought really carefully about how we are going to prepare our hearts and homes for the celebration of Christmas. We considered:

-      What we are sorry for

-      Asking God for courage

-      How we would feel on a long journey

-      Giving peace to others

-      A gift for the baby Jesus
