Weekly Update -- October 13, 2017
Dear Parents,
Today is the  100 th  anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima (Miracle of the Dancing Sun) and o ur school celebrated by participating in two activities. At 10:00 am the classes tuned in to EWTN for the broadcasting of the 15 th Annual Worldwide Children of the Eucharist Holy Hour live from the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington D.C. During this event, millions of children throughout the world united in prayer before the Eucharistic presence of Jesus to console and make reparation to His Most Sacred Eucharistic Heart. Each class lit a candle and the students recited a special prayer together, entrusting them to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. 
In the afternoon, our middle school students led us in a World Mission Rosary. The students were divided into groups and wore colors to represent the world. It was a wonderful opportunity to pray together for all of the families in the world. At 7:00 pm this evening EWTN will broadcast a Worldwide Candlelight Rosary Procession led by Cardinal Wuerl. I encourage you to check it out as a family. For more information about the Children of the Eucharist click here - https://childrenoftheeucharist.org

Have a blessed weekend!
Mrs. Bogataj
