Heavenly Father, we thank you for the gift of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,
who promised to stay with us always, until the end of the age.

Reawaken our wonder at His presence in the Most Holy Eucharist.
May our hearts burn within us as He opens the Scriptures and breaks the bread.

Give us the eyes of faith to recognize His presence in our brothers and sisters,
especially in the face of the poor and the suffering.

Nourished by the Eucharist, send us forth to walk faithfully as missionary disciples,
proclaiming the Gospel to every heart and extending Your kingdom to every land.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.


A Note from Mrs. Longden

It was so nice to see the kids back in school and such a flurry of activities in the hallways and classrooms once again. Everyone jumped back in with lots of smiles and lots of enthusiasm. School spirit is energizing for everyone.

The one thing that we pray for every day at our school is that God’s Spirit is among us and guides our path. We work hard at our school, and we also pray hard. God guides us and brings us great staff, great families, and great energy each year. This year is not an exception. God is with us, and His Spirit leads our way.


Mrs. Longden


Father Patrick has picked a theme for this year for our school.


The vision is to inspire a movement of Catholics across the United States who are healed, converted, formed, and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist - and who are then sent out on mission "for the life of the world".

We are in the year of Eucharistic Revival—this means we are being called to revive our faith in Jesus in the Eucharist. The word revive means “to restore to life or consciousness.” If we have let our love, our trust and hope in Jesus grow cold, or worse yet, lukewarm, He is now calling us to run back to Him with everything we have. He wants our mistakes, our doubts, our fears and shortcomings. If we don’t give them to Him, how can He make something even greater out of those things, out of us and our lives? How can we become saints if we don’t fully trust in the One we are hoping to spend eternity with?

Let’s ask a simpler question—do we have a relationship with Him? Yes! Because each person has a relationship with God, our Creator, whether they participate in it or not. And of course God allows you to enter into that freely, because He doesn’t want to force anyone to love Him—He is too much of a gentleman for that. But what does your relationship with Him look like?

Virtue - Trustworthiness

Saint: Bl. Anne Marie Javouhey

Aspiration: Come Holy Spirit, increase in me the Gift of Piety

Meaning: Acting in a way that inspires confidence and trust; being reliable

Prayer: Dear Jesus, Help me to be faithful in even the little things of each day. In Your eyes nothing is little when done with great love!

Scripture: Matthew 24:45-47

Opposing Trait: Being devious or deceptive

Ways to Cultivate: Perform actions that restore and maintain trust; act with fidelity in small matters.

Looks Like/Sounds Like: Tell the truth. "I will take the money to the office." Do the right thing even when no one is watching. Be faithful in small matters.


Arrival: The front doors of school will be closed and locked starting at 7:30 A.M. If you arrive after 7:30 you need to come in with your child and sign them in. Your child will be marked tardy.

Dress Code: Students have been doing a great job with our new formal dress code. Just a reminder that on Monday's it is Spirit Wear and Jeans day. If you do not wear a spirit wear top, you should come in our regular dress code. Tuesday-Friday are solid color polos and gray, khaki, navy, or black bottoms. If your child is out of dress code you will be notified and given ways to correct it.
