Elizabeth and Peter Hansen and their children – Margaret, left, Catherine and John – work on a Jesse Tree as part of their Advent traditions Nov. 20. The family uses the traditions to help their children more fully appreciate the importance of preparing for the coming of Christ at Christmas.

Elizabeth Hansen, right, gets help setting up Holy Cross School’s Advent wreath from third-graders Maggie Coolon, left, Will Tripp, Bridget Nosbisch, Rhese Pauba and Aubrey Prouse. Elizabeth is coordinator of youth and adult discipleship at the Omaha parish.
