Adopt-A-Family Advent Program  2108

Dear St. Serra Families,

St. Junipero Serra Catholic School's Adopt-A-Family Advent Program is here! As our theme reminds us, J.O.Y. (Jesus, Others, Yourself) our commitment to the Adopt-A-Family program allows us to bring the light and hope of Jesus' birth to Others.  

For 17 years our St. Serra community has generously supported the Adopt-A-Family Advent Program through Catholic Charities of Orange County.  This holiday season - through your generosity - our St. Serra community will be able to help provide a better Christmas for over 40 families!
Saint Teresa of Calcutta reminds us "At the end of our lives, we are not judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, or how many great things we have done. We are judged by, 'I was hungry and you gave me something to eat. I was naked and you clothed me. I was homeless and you took me in.' "
Each homeroom is assigned a family with each student being assigned one family member. Please be on the lookout for a special e-mail coming this week from your Room Parents with your child's assignment.  We are sending this out now to give everyone who wishes to participate the opportunity to shop over the Thanksgiving break. Gifts and gift cards should be brought into the classrooms by Monday, December 10.  Similar to last year, the classroom family assignments will also be attached to the Sunday Parent E-mail for easy reference when you are out shopping.
Please contact Carol Lawson at with any questions regarding this incredibly charitable  program.  Thank you in advance for your participation.

God is good...all the time
All the time...God is good.
