Holy Week & Preparing for the Easter Season
A Message from Sister Theresa Josephine, O.P., SCM Catechist
In the Atrium, our children have prepared to celebrate the holy, life-filled, and joyful season of Easter. Primary children received presentations about the Good Shepherd who loves, cares, protects, and is present with them always. They learned how He lays down his life for his sheep by giving us His Body and Blood at the Last Supper and continues to give Himself to us in the Eucharist. The children also received the presentation on the map of Jerusalem which tells them locations and the events that Jesus underwent during the Holy Week.

The AC Makes a Movie
Every other school year, the Adolescent Community produces a musical. This year the students chose Peter Pan, Jr.

The students are responsible for learning dialogue, songs, and choreography. They create sets and costumes, and also advertise and sell tickets to the SCM community.

Because of COVID-19 protocols, the students and their guides decided to turn the musical into a movie-musical. The week before Spring Break the students filmed their version of Peter Pan, Jr. and had a wonderful time preparing and performing.

Stay tuned for more details on the movie release date. In the meantime, click here to view cast and rehearsal photos.

Theology is a key component of the SCM High School curriculum. Over the course of the year, we have discussed such varied topics as the role and structure of prayer, our idea of “the good life,” the importance and meaning of loving your neighbor, and the role of theology in a global pandemic.

We are not presented with easy answers we are expected to memorize but rather with difficult questions we are expected to reflect on and discuss. In-class discussion is often supplemented with personal written reflections done outside of class.

Our final unit of theology class this year is focused on four major faiths outside of Christianity: Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, and Islam. We hope to further expand our understanding of these varied faiths and traditions in accordance with the statement made in Nostra Aetate that “The Catholic Church rejects nothing that is true and holy in these religions.”

In honor of Holy Week, Dr. Novo brought in individually packaged bread as well sparkling grape juice for us to share as a community in remembrance of the communal bond between the original Apostles.

Thank you for reading!
