Students invited to write an Advent prayer


Seventh- and eighth-graders in the Diocese of Davenport are invited to submit an original prayer for Advent to be published in The Catholic Messenger, including the newspaper, our new E-edition and website and with posts on our Facebook page. Prayers should be created by the student, reflecting on a Scripture from one of the four Sundays of Advent: Dec. 2, 9, 16 and 23.
Prayers should not exceed 400 words. The Catholic Messenger will choose from among the prayers submitted and publish the best entries during each of the four Thursdays during Advent.  Deadline for submission is Nov. 19.
Please include your name, age, address, school and parish and submit your prayer electronically to or by U.S. Postal Service to The Catholic Messenger at 780 W. Central Park Ave., Davenport, Iowa, 52804.
