A Message From the Principal
Our students have certainly been excited about the upcoming school vacation week. It is a time for renewal as we enter into the last remaining weeks of school. This school vacation week also falls on Holy Week this year. As we conclude the Lenten season and prepare for the celebration of the resurrection of our Lord, we recall the Paschal mystery with reverence and awe. May each of your families enjoy all of the blessings of the Easter season as well as a wonderful April vacation!

Sincerely,

Kathleen St.Laurent

A Note From Mr. O'Brien
Oh boy those Sox are killing us. The 6th grade had a great bullying session this week and I was able to attend the Chinese class field trip to the Harvard Museum of Natural History and the cultural experience of the Kan Man Market in Quincy. The high school play, Sister Act, is this weekend. I have had an insider’s look at the rehearsals and I highly recommend checking it out. The Living Stations of the Cross and the Honor Roll ceremony were both great MS events.

Have a great weekend! Mr. OB

A Note From Campus Ministry
Here are some wonderful resources as we begin the Easter season:





Holy Week and the Easter Triduum
The summit of the Liturgical Year is the Easter Triduum—from the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday. Though chronologically three days, they are liturgically one day unfolding for us the unity of Christ's Paschal Mystery. The single celebration of the Triduum marks the end of the Lenten season, and leads to the Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord at the Easter Vigil. The liturgical services that take place during the Triduum are: Mass of the Lord's Supper, Good Friday of the Lord's Passion, and Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord. Easter Sunday is the greatest of all Sundays, and Easter Time is the most important of all liturgical times. Easter is the celebration of the Lord's resurrection from the dead, culminating in his Ascension to the Father and sending of the Holy Spirit upon the Church. There are 50 days of Easter from the first Sunday to Pentecost.It is characterized, above all, by the joy of glorified life and the victory over death, expressed most fully in the great resounding cry of the Christian: Alleluia! All faith flows from faith in the resurrection:"If Christ has not been raised, then empty is our preaching; empty, too, is your faith." (1 Cor 15:14)
Senior Retreat at Stonehill College
Our 12th grade students had a fabulous retreat day at Stonehill College on April 9, 2019. "Preparing Spiritually for the Journey Ahead" was the theme. Together our students laughed, prayed, cried and had fun. We are most grateful to Stonehill College for working with Mrs. Payson to coordinate this special retreat day for our students. Please continue to keep the members of our senior class in your prayers.
