Season of Advent

As some of you may know, Advent is not quite Christmas, even though you wouldn't guess it by the decorations at the mall and the songs on the radio! We are still preparing for Jesus' arrival on Christmas as a newborn child, born to give hope to mankind.
At Mass we have been singing "Oh come, oh come Emmanuel" and other beautiful Advent hymns. Here are some excerpts from our Mass the past two Sundays, the first and second Sundays of Advent. Our singers range in age from 12-17.

1st Sunday of Advent - Veni, Veni Emanuel:

 2nd Sunday of Advent - Jesu Dulcis Memoria, Sanctus from the Missa de Angelis, and Rorate Caeli:

PS - Happy Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe! I meant to go to the morning greeting to Our Lady, las Mananitas... but sadly I forgot to set my alarm! I will try again for next year. I really would like the girls to have it as a tradition. Maybe when everyone is a little older. :p
