All Saints Catholic School serves the north Dallas, Plano, and Collin county areas. We are a faith based elementary and middle school centered around Christ. ASCS exists to pass on the Catholic faith to our children in a challenging academic environment with Gospel values as a foundation and Christ as the model. Parents, the primary educators of their children, together with our community, share the common goal of preparing children for life-long learning and Christian service. All Saints Catholic School is committed to nurturing each child's spiritual, intellectual, social, moral, emotional and physical development.
Each week, our principal, Sister Denise Thompson, blogs about different happenings at All Saints Catholic School. Check out what's on her mind this week:
December 4, 2013
I drove with the sunroof open yesterday (and will probably do so again today.) The blinds are halfway up and the sun in pouring into my office this afternoon. Of course by this time tomorrow we’ll probably be freezing.
The big challenge for retail this year is that there are less shopping days! I think we can flip that around and say that our challenge is that we have less days to celebrate the awe and beauty of Advent. We know it’s Advent – we see the changes at church – the wreath, the purple vestments, the singing of our song of longing “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” yet how do we live Advent? I think it can be a very personal journey. This personal journey comes in taking time (making time) to think about how we cangrow in a deeper, more intimate relationship with God; how to be more at peace with ourselves, our families, our world; to grow in gratitude and appreciate for all around us. It’s easy to get too busy to take those inner looks and sometimes it is painful to take those interior looks as well. The Churchinvites us to use this time well and like Mary, to ponder things in our hearts. Some of those things may bring us joy and some sorrow. So during these Advent days I invite you to accept the invitation to take a few moments here and there and think about the tremendous Gift ready to be given to us in just a few short weeks.
