Principal’s Letter, 11/23/2020

November 23, 2020   Dear Parents,           This Thursday we will celebrate Thanksgiving—a day of thanks for the harvest and all the gifts our nation provides.  As we gather in our homes at this difficult time in the world’s history, may remember all who might be without food and homes, ill, or without the comfort of family. Let us ask God’s blessing for He is the true giver of these gifts. The word Eucharist that we celebrate each weekend, whether in person or remotely, comes from...

Principal’s Letter, 11/12/2020

November 12, 2020   Dear Parents,             As we celebrate our veterans, we are reminded of the sacrifices they made to secure the freedoms that our country provides. In particular we are graced with Freedom of Religion, which allows our school to exist and to provide a prayerful atmosphere in which to learn.  Pope Francis has reminded us numerous times of our responsibilities to one another as God’s people.  In the atmosphere of care and compassion for the poor, of seeking peac...

Principal’s Letter, 11/4/2020

November 4, 2020   Dear Parents,             In this month of November, we continue to celebrate and to strive for our impending sainthood. Pope Francis has pointed out that the saints were not perfect people, but became saints because they chose to reflect the goodness of God in their lives.  They have chosen to be the reflection of God’s love, peace, and compassion for others, allowing others to see God through them.  May we strive to be that reflection as well.             We...

Principal’s Letter, 10/28/2020

October 28, 2020   Dear Parents,             This weekend we celebrate the feast of All Saints.  We remember that while the Church designates some holy people as Saints with a capital “S”, we know that there are many additional holy persons whose names are not brought forth through the process which the Church call Beatification for the “Blessed” and “Canonization” for those designated as “Saints”. Each of us strives to be holy and thus saintly, through our goodness and acts of com...

Principal’s Letter, 10/21/2020

October 21, 2020   Dear Parents,             During the month of October, we are continuing the tradition of praying a decade of the Most Holy Rosary before the students enter the building. At this time, we are physically distant and wearing masks.  As long as the weather allows, we will continue to have morning prayer at least once per week, as a whole school family, in this fashion.  We pray for the health and safety of all in our school, our community, and the world.         ...
