WELCOME BACK, GATORS!
We are so excited to see so many smiling faces ready to start the new school year.
Good Luck, Gators!
Each school year a religious theme song is chosen. Our 2019-2020 school theme is SCS shines like heaven on earth!  The song is Heaven on Earth by Stars Go Dim. 
SCS cannot control what goes on around us but we CAN control what happens inside our school. The faculty and staff are committed to making our school a little piece of heaven on earth! We appreciate your help with this task. You can begin by keeping us in your prayers. 
Any student in grades 4-7 interested in joining choir, come to our first rehearsal on Monday August 19 from 3:30-4:30 in the music room. At 4:30, the students will be walked to the yard to be picked up
ALL Fair shirts & bows MUST be ordered by Friday, August 23.
 Both shirts & bows can be ordered on www.stcatherineshop.com.
Children’s Church is designed to give the word of the Lord to children in a fun and enjoyable way. It is open to all preschool to elementary age children attending the 11 am Mass. Children are escorted to the Melancon Center prior to the Liturgy of the Word where they will experience the Gospel with age appropriate tools. The children return to Church after the homily. 

To continue this wonderful ministry we are in need of new volunteers to rotate two Sundays a month. If this ministry sounds like it is calling you, please contact Paula Atchley at paula@scschurch.com or 835-9343, so we may continue on the path to share the Catholic faith to our most precious little ones.
Did You Know?

Each of our classrooms have a prayer table and a prayer box. This is a visible place that reminds us of God’s presence. Petitions or worries can be written down and placed in the prayer boxes so that all our concerns can be prayed for each day.

“When your worries consume you, and life’s hard to bear, let go and let God bring you comfort in prayer.”

Please check this religion corner on Gators Bites each week. I would like to share information, reminders and some creative ideas for you to try at home in hopes of building our family faith formation.
Thank you,
