Comfort, Joy and Obedience

Joseph was someone who asked questions. But first and foremost, he was a man of faith. Faith gave Joseph the power to find light just as the moment when everything seemed dark. Faith sustained him amid the troubles of life. Thanks to faith, Joseph was able to press forward when everything seemed to be holding him back.

Lord, as always, I am inspired by Joseph's faith in, and love for, you. And, as always, I am overwhelmed by the way in which you know exactly what we need. We need to pick up our crosses every day and follow, shouldering our doubts and fears, and move forward in your name. May I accept the burden I carry today with Joseph's obedience and faith. May I be attentive and open to the bits of grace and mercy you tuck into the most challenging of situations. Amen.

Please note...

We have made an announcement today asking students not to drink the water just to be safe. We had an issue with the hot water being murky and acted on the on the side of caution, but were later assured that the cold water was fine so no one should get sick. Maintenance is looking into the issue with our hot water tank.

The weather is going milder next week and students will be expected to go outside for recess. Please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately. Merci!

Many objects have collected in the Lost and Found bin lately. Please ask your child to check for their belongings.

We will continue to sell Me to We Rafiki bracelets until they are all gone next week. All proceeds will go to Me to We to help families in Africa.

Please continue to give generously items for our Jesse ''Box'' and for the Christmas Bureau. Items will be accepted until next Friday. Thank you so much for your contributions!
