At Notre Dame Prep, traditions are tied to many of our beloved celebrations. These traditions are among the many things that make NDP so special. As Alumnae Engagement Manager, one of my favorites is Christmas Liturgy.
Each year, we welcome home our recently graduated alumnae—this year the Class of 2018. As the honorary class member of the Class of 2018, this year is extra special for me! You can see the excitement on the faces of our young alumnae as they walk through the doors of NDP once again. Catching up with classmates and friends, seeing former teachers and mentors—it is a day full of joy!
Christmas Liturgy is the perfect example of the “spirit about this place” we all call home. I think I speak for all when I say that every year I get the chills singing “Go Light Your World” as the auditorium becomes illuminated with the light from each candle we hold. So, to all of our alumnae and NDP family and friends, I wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Why do we love Christmas Liturgy? What does this day mean to us? Let’s hear from the Class of 2018!
