Respect Life Month
In October we celebrate Respect Life Month. We have several important activities planned thus far. First, we will teach the student lesson for the Child and Adolescent Protection Policy. Your children bring home information for you to discuss with them. Second, we will pray a Pro-Life Rosary together on Friday, October 13 at 2:20. Parents are welcome to join their students in the classroom and pray with us.  Finally, we are again raising money for the 2B Choices for Women Pregnancy Center with our annual Baby Bottle Fundraiser. This will take place during the weeks of October 16-20. Each family will receive a baby bottle and you are asked to fill it with loose change.  The money raised will help 2B provide services to women and babies. Thank you in advance  for your generosity. In addition to these events, many of our 7th and 8th grade members of the Pro Life Club will be meeting other students on Friday mornings at 6:30 a.m. as they recite the Rosary together and pray for life  as part of the 40 Days for Life Campaign.

Blessing of the Animals
October 10th

Our annual Blessing of the Animals, in honor of St. Francis of Assisi, is October 10th. The blessing will  be held after the 8:15 school Mass. Parents may bring pets to school and meet students in the parking lot around 9:00 as the students are leaving Mass. All animals must be in a cage or on a leash. Children may not bring animals to school with them, and no animals will be allowed to stay at school. All animals must go home after the blessing. If you are not able to bring your child's pet, children may choose to bring a picture of their pet. A special blessing will be offered for all pets, even those not present.

Bible Verse

Each month students learn a Bible verse, and  recite it together at school during our morning prayers. We also pray a particular prayer each month. During the month of September, our verse is  Proverbs 3:5  

 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding."

Our prayer focus is the Our Father.
