ST. MICHAEL CATHOLIC SCHOOL NEWS & UPDATES
Prayer of St. Charles Borromeo
 
Almighty God, you have generously made known
to human beings the mysteries of your life
through Jesus Christ your Son in the Holy Spirit.

Enlighten my mind to know these mysteries
which your Church treasures and teaches.
 
Move my heart to love them and
my will to live in accord with them.

Give me the ability to teach this Faith to others 
without pride, without ostentation, 
and without personal gain .
 
Let me realize that I am simply your instrument
for bringing others to the knowledge of the wonderful
things you have done for all your creatures.

Help me to be faithful to this task 
that you have entrusted to me .
 
Amen.

Congratulations to Team "2020 God Sight"
A BIG GATOR CONGRATULATIONS goes to this year's team "2020 God Sight" who traveled to Columbia on Saturday, February 8, 2020, to participate in the Diocesan-wide Catholic Quiz Bowl held at Our Lady of the Hills Church. The SMCS team with excitement and enthusiasm showed their knowledge in many categories, including both the Old and New Testaments, Catechism, Parables, Order of the Mass, priests' apparel, Saints, Mysteries of the Rosary, Sacraments and many more Catholic faith questions. Although they did not win a trophy they won something much more important. They won the wonderful graces from God received for tirelessly studying and for selflessly giving up their day off for the Greater Glory of God and for their school. They were all very happy to hear that their REWARD would be in Heaven. God bless Cade J, John T, Emma B and Margaret T, team "2020 God Sight" GO GATORS!!!


Congratulations 2nd Grade
Congratulations to our 2nd graders who received the Sacrament of Reconciliation on Tuesday, February 11th. It was a beautiful evening filled with many graces and blessings as the 2nd graders received God’s forgiveness for the very first time in this awesome Sacrament. May God continue to bless and strengthen these young people and their families as they continue on their Faith Journey and prepare for their next Sacrament, First Holy Communion on Saturday, May 2nd.
