First Day of school for all students is August 26, 2020

Dear Bishop Moore Catholic families,
We spent this week welcoming our faculty back to campus and preparing them for success in the onsite and virtual classrooms. We welcomed new faculty members and staff including our new

Every year our Diocese chooses a theme for our school community to meditate on throughout the year. This year, we will be reflecting on the verse Come, Follow Me. When the Lord calls us, He very rarely also shares a complete roadmap or plan for the rest of our lives. Very beautifully in St. John's Gospel, Jesus simply tells seekers Come and See. The Lord wants us to be with Him. All of Jesus' mission and salvation history culminates in His invitation for us to be with Him. What does it mean to be a Christian? What is discipleship? A disciple is someone who is with the Lord, who knows they are loved and desired by Him, and who boldly walks with Him wherever He leads. Throughout the upcoming year, we will be sharing reflections and various prayerful activities so that we can spend time asking the Lord how He is calling us to follow Him this year.

The safety of our students, faculty and staff are of the utmost importance to us. Please review the procedures and policies we developed, in coordination with the Diocese of Orlando Catholic Schools, to safeguard against the spread of COVID-19.

In Christ,

The BMC Administrative Team
