Teaching the Way of Jesus Christ
January 11, 2016
A Note from the Interim Principal
With last Thursday’s first Mass of the New Year, Father Jeff asked our students to share the ways in which they show love of God. Students answered with a variety of responses: prayer, caring for friends, telling God we love Him, going to church, and more. Each response warmed my heart. It made me think that every parent of these students is showing love of God by choosing to send their students to a school in which Jesus Christ is the role model and at the heart of all we do. In a time of resolutions and fresh starts, may we all keep our priorities focused on teaching and following the Way of Christ.

Pot O' Gold News - Wine Pull
New to the Pot O' Gold - Wine Pull
Get in the "spirit" with a donation of a bottle of wine for the Wine Pull that will be held at the Pot O' Gold!
What is a Wine Pull, you ask? Pot O’ Gold attendees will be able to purchase and choose a bottle of wine from the donations we receive. The fun part of the event is they do not know what kind of wine they are choosing because the bottles are all wrapped the same!
We are asking for a donation of a bottle of wine worth $15.00 or greater. All wine must be received by Wednesday, February 3rd. You may drop it off at the school office.
If you have any questions or would like to donate, please contact Maria Orand at 817-676-6711.
