Dear SCBA Families,

We are two weeks and two days shy of the upcoming Christmas Break. More important, we are less than three weeks away from celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior! This week in our Advent journey, we light the Bethlehem Candle, in eager anticipation of the arrival of Jesus. Please note that our Mass this week will take place on Friday morning at 8am.

Congratulations to our very own 8th grader, Lily Slakoff, who won the Diocesan-wide logo Contest for the upcoming Middle School Youth Day in March. Way to go, Lily! 

Our 6th grade class is sponsoring this Friday night’s Movie Night from 6pm-9pm. Please see the attached form for detailed information. 

A huge thank you to the Firicano family and and to all who volunteered to help with this year’s Christmas float for the OB Christmas parade. It was wonderful to have so many families involved
with this great event.

Have a blessed week and Advent season!

​The SCBA Team
