Each year, Huntington Catholic School celebrates Christmas in a unique way. Students are given an opportunity to buy a birthday present for Jesus in the form of a donation to the school library. Each participating student’s donation is then used to buy books of a religious nature, including books about the life and works of Jesus, saints, sacraments, catechism and the Catholic church and culture.

Both fiction and non-fiction books are added to the religious collection, including picture books, story books, chapter books and graphic novels and comic books.

The donating student gets to take the book home with them first. When it is returned, the book is placed in the school library, where all students and school staff may access it for work in the classroom or to check out and read at home. This year’s participating students were honored during the all-school liturgy program on Friday, Jan. 7.
