St. Michael students were so incredibly blessed to have Immaculée Ilibagiza as a special guest speaker this morning. @ilibagizaimmaculee is the author of Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust. Many of our students have read this autobiographical work detailing how she survived, with the help of prayer, during the Rwandan genocide. She is an inspiration and our school captains were fortunate to speak privately with with her after the presentation. #WalkTogether

Today, November 27, is the first day of Advent. Each Sunday preceding Christmas, an Advent candle is lit representing the virtues Jesus brought us. The Advent season is a time of preparation for our hearts and minds for the birth of Jesus on Christmas day. The first week of Hope reminds us of the assurance we have that God will fulfill all his promises through the birth of Jesus.
Happy Thanksgiving, from our St. Michael family to yours!
