CHARGER CHRONICLES

May 21, 2021 - Have a Great Summer

“Look upon yourself as a tree planted beside the water, which bears its fruit in due season; the more it is shaken by the wind, the deeper it strikes its roots into the ground.” -- Margaret Mary Alacoque

Facilities Work Over the Summer

Since no one replied to the request for a “Clear Skies” crew to help clean windows, blinds, and window sills in classrooms across the campus, it has been cancelled.


This summer we will be painting all classrooms in the PODS 1-12 as well as classrooms 24-25-26. We will repairing some of the gutters.


We are taking the lead from our 7th grade students/parents who have revitalized the Rosary Garden and trying to beautify our campus.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM MRS. GALLO, Librarian

To all students leaving SMM, your SMM google account will be closed after July 15th and you will no longer be able to access the account. If there are any documents you want in your google drive, you will have to open a personal google account and transfer the information over. If you need any help, please contact Ms. Gallo at sgallo@saintmm.org for assistance.

It’s easy to create a recognition ad. Just send us a copy of your favorite photo and compose your message.

You design your own ad, but it must be in good taste and appropriate for a Catholic elementary school. If you have any questions, please contact Coach Gay in the school office.

A Message from Fr. Ed






Dear Parents,

While this school year ends this week we will continue ‘opening up’ to full participation at Sunday Masses in all Catholic parishes. For the first weekend of June (June 4-5-6) Archbishop Aymond calls on all Catholics to return to the celebration of Sunday Mass. This obligation for Catholics is meant to also emphasize the privilege of gathering again as God’s people for the Mass

where we celebrate ‘in person’ the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ.

On Friday, June 4, 7:30 PM we will have a Holy Hour to begin the month of June, the month of the Sacred Heart.

June 5-6 we will celebrate the solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. (see your church bulletin for Saturday vigil and Sunday Mass times)

Looking forward to seeing you at Mass throughout the weekends of summer!

God bless you as the first and best of teachers in the ways of Faith!

Father Ed

Pastor

St. Margaret Mary Church Mass schedule:

SAT 4:00 pm 6:00 pm (Spanish)

SUN 8:30, 10:!5.12 Noon, and 5 PM

Please Pray for Our Priests

In addition to our requests for prayers for our SMM families and community, we request that you pray for individual priests in our Archdiocese. Our priests need our prayers as much as we need theirs.


Here is a brief prayer that you may want to use:

Eternal Father, we lift up to you these and all the priests of the world. Sanctify them. Heal and guide them. Mold them into the likeness and holiness of your Son, Jesus, the Eternal High Priest. May their lives be pleasing tp you. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen
