VOLUME 19 | February 27, 2020
ST. MICHAEL CATHOLIC SCHOOL NEWS & UPDATES
Gracious God, today begins a period of inner reflection and examination. The days stretch before me and invite me inward to that silent, holy space that holds your Spirit. This special time beckons me to see my life through Christ's eyes and the truth and reality of your love incarnate. Give me the grace to enter the space of these days with anticipation of our meeting. And, when I open my soul to your presence, let your loving kindness flow over me and seep into the pockets of my heart. I ask this for the sake of your love.
 
Amen.

Congratulations...
Auston Walton
Congratulations to Auston Walton in 2nd Grade for receiving the Sacrament of Baptism on Friday, February 21st at our 8 AM School Mass. It was a very beautiful Mass and it was so special for the school and parish community to witness such a Grace-Filled moment in Auston’s life. Welcome to our Catholic Family, Auston! 
Dear Parents,

Can you believe that Easter is only 7 weeks away?

Every year we collect baskets, candy, and toys to make Easter baskets for Help 4 Kids. We ask each student to send in an Easter basket, grass, and a bag of candy. WE also collect stuffed animals and will accept lightly used and cleaned stuffed animals to put in each of the baskets. Anything you are able to give would be appreciated.

Please bring in donations by Thursday, April 2nd . This will give us two days to get the baskets put together before Help 4 Kids picks them up for delivery.

WE are always amazed by the wonderful and humble volunteers at Help 4 Kids and anything Saint Michael Catholic School can do to provide assistance for these needy families is appreciated. Thank you for your generosity and being a part of helping needy children during this Easter season.

Thank you again and God Bless,

Ms. Brenda and Mrs. Bleakney
