Dragon Roar: May 27
Daring Greatly in Faith, Academics & Service since 1960
We honor and thank our men and women who have given their lives to serve for us today.
Blessings to you, Dragons. Here we go into our last week of school.
Today we thank and remember our service members who have died in armed conflicts defending our country. Thank you to all that are currently serving. Know we pray for you as a school community.
Yesterday we celebrated the last all school mass of the year. Our 8th graders led our worship and sang for our choir. We are going to miss our Class of 2019!
In our Sunday Gospel, Jesus promises his disciples that the Father will send the Advocate, the Holy Spirit.
"Jesus said to his disciples:"Whoever loves me will keep my word,
and my Father will love him,
and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him."
Sixth Sunday of Easter
Jesus is preparing his disciples in advance for his absence so that they will continue to believe in him and not feel all alone after his return to the Father. As our celebration of the Easter season is coming to an end, the liturgy reminds us that Jesus remains with us through the Holy Spirit, who teaches us everything we need to know, reminds us of all that Jesus taught, and brings us peace. May the Holy Spirit, our flames in our school crest, be with all of you as we celebrate the last 4 days of our school year.

Need financial support? Apply for Tuition Assistance. We will use to provide support as resources allow.
Please know we will use your HFF application data to find additional support as our resources allow. We are building our in house Guardian Angel Tuition Assistance fund and have a few donors wanting to support our families. We must have a HFF application to provide support.
If you are not familiar, Hope for the Future (HFF) is the Archdiocesan Scholarship Fund to support families in need of tuition assistance. At St. Monica's we use the metrics provided by HFF to provide additional assistance. This means even if you do not receive a scholarship, we may be able to provide support. All families needing assistance from St. Monica's must apply.
The application takes about 30 minutes to complete and costs $35. Many of our families who submit timely applications receive awards either through HFF or funds as they become available to our school from donors. Our families received between $500 and $1,000 per student.
Applications close on June 28, 2019.
- If you do not receive funding in the early round, know your application will remain open until June to potentially receive funds.
Those who apply earn:
- $35 waived from School Registration Fee
