Reflection Corner: The Holy Trinity
The celebration of the Trinity recognizes the three persons in ONE GOD - FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT. It is one of the greatest mysteries in the Church. While we cannot fully fathom the mystery of the Trinity, let us pause and reflect on its important dimensions which is the community of love and persons. The TRINITY is the primary symbol of a community.
How do I bring my relationship with God to my family and community? Am I willing to lay down my life for those whom the Lord has given me to take care for?
Thank you very much for everyone's cooperation in making this year's carnival one fun and successful event. We would like to extend our appreciation to Event Chair, Mr. Alvin Ubaldo, all committee members, room parents, parent volunteers who helped put the whole thing together.
All classes that met 100% participation are having their Free Dress Day on Tuesday, May 31st. Those who met their point incentives will have their class parties either on Friday, May 27th or Wednesday, June 1st. The Room Parents will coordinate the parties with their respective teachers.
Great job, everyone!

Congratulations to all students in our band program. The Catholic Elementary Schools Spring Concert at Serra HIgh School was very well-attended. Our students did well as they performed with students from the other Catholic Elementary Schools. Congratulations and appreciation go to Mr. McClanahan, our band teacher, and his OLM students for a job well-done.
