Reflection Corner: Palm Sunday

As we begin HOLY WEEK with the celebration of Palm Sunday each year, we reflect on the dramatic entrance of Jesus to Jerusalem. He is hailed by the crowd as a King and be mocked and accused a week later. Jesus’ message of salvation indeed surprised and disappointed a lot of people. Only few people embraced his message to seek first his kingdom - a kingdom of humility, peace and humble service not of power and privilege. Let us pray that through this week, we may share Christ’s dying and rising through our sacramental life.


Lord, as we commemorate your entry to Jerusalem, enter into our lives, our homes and cities, once again today, heal us Lord. Transform us and rise with us as we renew our commitment to you. Amen.

OLM Walkathon

Thank you very much for a successful Walkathon last Friday. The event went smoothly from beginning till end. Our students, most importantly, had fun walking / jogging / running with each other and with their teachers. Hats off to our PTO and the parent volunteers who worked hard to make the Walkathon as successful as it turned out to be. The amount raised in the event exceeded projected revenue. Your support is much appreciated.
