Dear Parents, 

We were so glad to see all of our smiling students today! We hope that all of our families enjoyed the Easter Holidays. It is hard to believe that there are only 4 more weeks left in this school year! Please take a moment to read about some of our upcoming events and ways that you can support our school during these upcoming weeks.
Bible Verse of the Month
Our Bible verse focus for the month of May is Proverbs 3:6

“In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.” 

Our prayer focus is the Hail Mary :
 Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

First Communion this Sunday
We are praying for our students who will receive the sacrament of first holy communion this Sunday at 1:00. We pray that our first communicants, along with all of our students, will remember that God’s love will always be there to comfort you, guide you, and bless you.
