"For whoever is not against us is for us. Anyone who gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ, amen, I say to you, will surely not lose his reward."
What are my “stumbling blocks”? Where do I fall prey to the sins that cause rifts in my relationship with Christ?
Lord, I love You with all my mind, heart, soul, and strength. Please reveal to me the areas of my life where I am not surrendering to You, and guide me on a path of righteousness.

St. Francis of Assisi Feast Day
To celebrate the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi whose feast day is October 4th, we will once again have the Blessing of the Pets at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 4th in the upper school yard. The event is open to our parish community. Parents may bring their pets to school for the blessing on a leash or in an animal crate. Those folks that have caged pets that are reptiles, fish or birds may bring those pets at the beginning of the day to spend time with their human and his or her classmates in their homeroom. Students may bring a picture of a drawing of their pets or favorite animals to the afternoon prayer service, too. All our welcome even if you can't bring your pet or you don't even have one. It is always a festive day in honor of St. Francis.
