Alleluia Day 2017
“It was extremely awesome!”
At ASA we believe that we are one, so we get our community together a few times during the year to celebrate together as one body in Christ. Alleluia Day is the our final all school celebration of the year and this year it was also the day we invited grandparents and other special people to celebrate with us.
"My mom said she had tears in her eyes like seven times today. She said today's event was beautiful. We are so proud to be a part of the ASA community and I share that fact with everyone I can." -Middle School Parent
Alleluia means God be praised so it is fitting that this day begins with Mass and ends with a praise concert! For Mass students sat with their multi-age groups. These are the same groups student walk with for Via Dolorosa and are organized so that siblings and family guests can spend the day celebrating together!
“It was a really fun. This was one time I was able to spend with my sister. She even enjoyed it.”
“Alleluia Day was a fun experience for me and my brother. We loved all of the art there.”
After Mass our guests enjoyed a small reception while the students practiced briefly for the praise concert and then everyone toured the middle school hallways to check out student art work. Many people also explored our budding school garden and spent time playing on the playground and socializing before a soup and sandwich community lunch.
“I thought the art fair was a really good idea.”
“ The food was yummy.”
“It was a beautiful day.”
After lunch we ended our Alleluia Day celebration with a praise concert in the Church.
“The music was great!”

Although the toddlers and preschoolers were not able to join us at the middle school campus they had there own celebration at the elementary campus. They marched through the hallways playing band instruments.
“It was a lot of fun. All the kids enjoyed it.”
Alleluia! He is Risen!
