In preparation for the holiday season, the Princeton Academy community celebrated our annual Advent Prayer Service which was organized by Student Liturgy and gathered as one school for a celebratory mass for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Fr. Tom Mullelly presided over the Mass and delivered a beautiful homily about love and hope. Thank you to all of the families and alumni who joined us.
A reflection from Headmaster Rik Dugan in his biweekly Letters from the Headmaster:
During this blessed time of year, we focus on the virtues of hope, love, joy and peace. The onset of early darkness in December provides us with an opportunity to welcome an epoch of light as we illuminate the Advent wreath, light the Menorah, and adorn our trees and homes with symbolic luminescence. Now is a season of hope, a magical time that compels our hearts to cherish the young, so let us honor and celebrate the light that our boys shine.
