The school community was busy in the month of September! The students have been doing a great job preparing the liturgies for Mass, we celebrated our first Baptismal blessing, had Blessing of the Bibles for the 6th grade class, and we celebrated our patron saint, St. Gabriel last week at Mass. We even had our parent meetings for the second grade and eighth grade classes as they are busy preparing for First Reconciliation and Confirmation. Please keep the second graders and eighth graders in your prayers as they prepare for these important sacraments.
Welcome back to the 2016-2017 school year! After spending the summer in an empty building preparing for the new school year, I am so excited to have the faculty and students back in the building. The sounds of laughter, conversations, and watching friendships reconnect have been such a delight to witness as we begin our new school year.
Our theme for the school year is, “Join Hands with Christ to Build a Better World”. The faculty and students are going to be focusing on the Corporal Works of Mercy this year as we continue to work on the Year of Mercy.
