Breakfast With Santa Brings Guardian Angels Catholic Community Together Breakfast With Santa Brings Guardian Angels Catholic Community Together

Breakfast With Santa Brings Guardian Angels Catholic Community Together

Sunday December 4th was a great morning for all those attending the Guardian Angels 2nd Annual Breakfast With Santa. Many of the children got to meet Santa and take a picture with him. Advent is the the main reason for the gathering as we prepare as a community for the coming of our Lord Jesus. The Nativity scene was on display at the front of the gym for all to see. We also displayed pictures on our new huge screen of various school events throughout this year. Superintendent Hucal was impressed with the spirit of both Parents/Guardians and staff.

We wanted to thank the Breakfast with Santa committee who put in quite a bit of time before and during the event. We truly are blessed to have a staff at Guardian Angels who continue to give up their free time to spend with our children at Guardian Angels.

Please enjoy the pictures of the morning.
