Mayfield Benefit News - Yes we can do the Hustle!
Wow! What a Benefit launch we had on Friday, filling the gym with students, faculty, staff and many parents, all doing The Hustle! Lisa Byrne was an authentic disco queen in her disco duds, leading the entire crowd! Best of all, we did what we came to do...we broke the record! ...or maybe the best part was the fun of it all!

Faith Matters: Preparing for first eucharist on April 30th
The second graders are preparing for First Eucharist on April 30th. Your children are studying and learning about the sacrament of First Eucharist, and preparing for their important day. We are assigning "reading" and "doing" parts very soon, because your children will be leading much of the special Mass, and singing special songs of praise.
Once again: The best preparation for First Eucharist that you can give your child is regular attendance at Mass. Talk to your child about the Mass and emphasize that the Mass is God's family celebrating a meal. Start at the beginning of the Mass and explain that as we enter the church, we make the family sign, the Sign of the Cross. Ask your child if he or she knows or can guess why the cross is our family sign. Remind your child that Jesus, by His death on the cross, gave to the world the life that your child will share in; the bread and wine of the Eucharist, the Body and Blood of Jesus; life that goes on forever, even after we die.
Remind your child when we dip our fingers into the holy water and make the sign of the cross, we are reminded of the holy waters of Baptism that make us members of God's family. Point out that just as we wash our hands before eating a family meal, blessing ourselves with holy water helps us to remember that before receiving Jesus, our spiritual food, our souls should be cleansed of sin.
