December’s winner was Gabriella Maccarone, a second-grader at Quest Elementary School in Hilton. In response to What is Advent, and how should Catholics celebrate it? Gabriella wrote, “Advent is when we get ready to celebrate the birth of Jesus. During Advent Catholics prepare for Christmas and light a special candle each week. We celebrate by letting our own light shine by doing good deeds for each other, making gifts and helping others in need. In church we sing and pray together so our hearts will be ready to welcome Jesus.”
