ROYAL REVIEW (9.23.22)

To be Christ-centered in our words, thoughts and actions.

ROYALFEST

Late last week and into this week, we sent home packets for students to sell tickets for our major school fundraiser, Royalfest. We are very excited to be able to continue the tradition of having this event. Last year, we provided wine tasting and included a live and silent auction. This year, we have incorporated a fun game called "Singo" and will again have the silent and live auction. Kekionga Cider Company will once again be one of our sponsors.


This is an ADULT-ONLY event and is scheduled to take place from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 12th. The doors open at 5:00, dinner is at 6:00 and Singo begins at 7:00. Make sure you purchase your tickets or get your friends together and purchase an entire table. You will not want to miss this event.


Back by popular demand, we will be auctioning off a Hot Air Balloon Ride once again.


May the Lord continue to bless you and your family.


Mr. Wiegmann

FALL CLEANUP OCTOBER 15TH

Our Fall Campus Cleanup is scheduled for Saturday, October 15th (Rainout date is October 29th) and it will last from 8 a.m. to Noon. Donuts and Drinks will be provided. We are encouraging all students and parents to participate in either this cleanup or our Spring Cleanup which will be on April 15, 2023.


We continually work hard to keep our grounds cleaned up and beautiful and this is an awesome opportunity to give back to the Parish and School through your gift of Service. This year, we will be tying a classroom competition to the cleanup. The grade level that has the most attendance at the Fall Cleanup will get a Donut Party provided by the school.


Come join us for this school-wide event.

This will take place on Tuesday, October 25th, and will begin with a Prayer Service in the Church at 6:00 p.m. The activities will continue after the service in the Monsignor Faber Activities Center Gym. Students, parents and staff are encouraged to dress up as their favorite Saint for both the prayer service and the event.

“KOATS FOR KIDS"

The “Koats For Kids” program is ready to distribute new coats to school age children in grades preschool through 8th grade who need a winter coat. We have been serving the Fort Wayne area since 1997 distributing winter coats for eligible children and we are not stopping now! We will continue to serve the children maintaining our high standards of new coats and volunteer friendliness. We have partnered with the Fort Wayne Police Department to deliver the coats to the school. If you would like a coat for your child(ren) please contact Mrs. Etter as soon as possible. christy.etter@queenofangelsschool.com

Prayer Cards for the Unborn

October is Respect Life Month and all our Staff and Students will be given a prayer card to keep with them to pray for our Unborn.


Everyone is encouraged to pray the "Spiritual Adoption Prayer for the Protection of an Unborn Child" every day for nine months (the duration of time the child is in the womb), asking the Holy Family to save a baby's life.


As stated on the prayer card, “You may never meet the baby you spiritually adopted while on earth, but you surely will in Heaven!”

Please join us in praying for our unborn children!

Rosario en espanol Rosary in Spanish

Rosario en español: Ven y únete con nosotros todos los lunes a las 8:15 A.M. para rezar el rosario en Español . Esta hora fue escogido para que aquellos padres que pueden atender ,después dejar a sus niños al colegio pueden caminar directamente a la iglesia y rezar el rosario. Nuestra Señora promete quién reza constantemente mi Rosario, recibirá cualquier gracia que me pida con la conformidad de la voluntad de Dios .Nuestro Señor Jesús Cristo y la Virgen María te espera.

Paz y Bien,
Laurie Reynolds

Come and join us every Monday at 8:15 and learn to pray the rosary in Spanish. We have three parishioners that have joined us since April and they know already how to pray it in Spanish. I have made prayer cards where you can follow with us. Our Lady promises whoever prays my rosary constantly will receive whatever grace they ask of me in accordance with God’s will. Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary awaits you.
