Reflection Corner: Embracing the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ

Holy Week is a time of final preparations and great anticipation. Our long preparations of prayers, fasting, and almsgiving during Lent will continue but with greater intensity. May we, in this most sacred time of the year, embrace the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.


THE CROSS
The cross is the hope of Christians
the cross is the resurrection of the dead
the cross is the way of the lost
the cross is the savior of the lost
the cross is the guide of the blind
the cross is the strength of the weak
the cross is the hope of the hopeless
We thank you, Father, for the cross.

OLM Choir at the Archdiocesan Choral Festival

Our school choir headed to Archbishop Riordan High School to represent us in the annual Archdiocesan Choral Festival last Thursday, March 11th. Led by Ms. Laura Reyes, they sang "Top of the World". As always, our choristers did a fantastic job. Congratulations to our school choir and Ms. Reyes! Thank you to all parents who came out and supported our homegrown musicians. :-)

A Light in the Library

What would you do if you could bring any character from a book to life? "A Light in the Library" is a comedy that sees the chaos unfold when a trouble maker and a goody-two-shoes unleash a loon, a pirate, a boy who never grows up, and more loose in the library. Directed by Dominic Paris, the play lights up the OLM theater again featuring our talented junior high students at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, March 18th, and at 3:00 p.m. (take note of the time change) on Saturday, March 19th. 2016. Tickets are at $5 / adult and $2/ child.
