MCCHS FRIDAY FOCUS
79th Edition: August 10, 2018
Pilgrims on the Way of Truth
Always Begin with God: a Message from Fr. Twenty
The Holy Mass is our greatest gift. In the Mass, Jesus Christ speaks to us, heart to heart. In the Mass, heaven touches earth when He becomes truly present in the Eucharist. In the Mass, we join ourselves to His work of salvation for us and the whole world!
Daily Mass is the best opportunity at Marian to grow spiritually. I know that this is not always possible for everyone to attend with how busy we all are. However, I want to make the daily Mass experience as accessible as possible to as many people as possible in our community. So, I have decided to try out a few changes to the weekly Chapel schedule:
Daily Mass. M-F, 7:45am-8am.
Confessions. M-Th, right after school at 2:30pm until all are heard (unless there is a team/club Mass that day), and Monday during all lunch periods. Also feel free to ask me for confession any time!
Adoration. T-Th during all lunch periods.
By starting Mass at 7:45am, even those who ride the bus can still hopefully make it. I will make sure it is done by 8am, so that students and faculty have time to get to class. If you have to come late and/or leave early, no problem.
NOTE: Team/Club Masses will still be at the normal 2:40pm time (unless a different time is requested). I simply will celebrate two Masses on those days.
See you at Mass! All are welcome!

Reminders from the School Office
Emergency Contact Information
Each family should have received an emailed form requesting updated emergency contact, medical and demographic information. Please complete the form for each student so that we have the most current information on file. For your convenience, there is also an option to upload your student's immunization records right into the form. If you did not receive the email, please contact Mrs. DiSilvio at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Immunization Records and Birth Certificates
Attention Freshman: All Freshmen must have an up-to-date record of immunizations on file in the office. All Freshmen must also provide a birth certificate.
Attention Seniors: All Seniors must provide proof of up-to-date meningitis vaccine.
