ROYAL REVIEW (9.10.20)

To be Christ-centered in our words, thoughts and actions.

Blessings Among Us

This week we celebrated the birth of our mother, Mary, who is our Patroness. Knowing that her Yes to be the mother of our Lord, is where all of our stories start. It was such an honor to celebrate with our Middle School and Father Zak, that special Mass.


On Wednesday, Bishop Rhoades held a prayer service for racial justice. The Fifth Grade as well as the Middle School attended this livestream service, with myself and their teachers. After the service, I spoke with the students and reiterated the most important words that Bishop could have shared. He told us that we are called to follow two of the greatest Commandments, Love of God and Love of Neighbor. When we can do both of these things, we can work to help remove racial injustice.


These are two of the many blessings that our school received this week. Please continue to pray for our staff and our students as we move through our journey of LOVE.


Many Blessings,


Dennis G. Wiegmann

Principal

Queen of Angels Catholic School


OTHER HAPPENINGS

VIRTUE = STRENGTH

The theme for VIRTUE = STRENGTH this month is LEADERSHIP. Leadership is the strength to serve others without seeking to be served. We will continue to discuss Leadership and other virtues that fit this monthly theme.


As a family, we ask that you consider making a monthly family resolution based on the virtue. This month use the virtue of leadership to make a family visit to the Blessed Sacrament. What better way as parents to LEAD, than to have a visit with the Lord with our children and family.

THE ANGELUS

This year our school has made a concerted effort to stop all that we are doing at Noon and pray the Angelus together. We ask that you consider joining us from wherever you are. Below is the prayer, so that you can have it with you wherever you may be when the Noon hour hits.



The Angelus


V: The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.

R: And she conceived of the Holy Spirit

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed art thou among women,

and blessed is the fruit of they womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners

now and at the hour of our death. Amen


V: Behold the handmaid of the Lord.

R: Be it done unto me according to thy word.

Hail Mary...


V: And the Word was made Flesh (genuflect)

R: And dwelt among us.

Hail Mary...


V: Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.

R: That we may be worthy of the promises of Christ.


V: LET US PRAY:

Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts;

that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ, Thy Son,

was made known by the message of an Angel,

may by His Passion and Cross,

be brought to the glory of His Resurrection

through the same Christ our Lord. Amen


Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,

a world without end. Amen


Glory be...


Glory be...

HASA MEETING

Our first HASA meeting of the year will be on Monday, September 14, 2020, starting at 6:00 pm. This meeting will be downstairs in our Social Hall. We welcome all parents, administrators, and teachers to the meeting. We will be planning this year's activities and fundraisers, as well as nominating officers.


Our HASA provides so many wonderful opportunities and support to our school. Please consider joining this wonderful organization.

BEFORE-CARE & AFTER-CARE CLARIFICATIONS

Due to COVID-19 restrictions we had to adjust the hours that before-care was scheduled for our students. Parents may drop off their children, after they have had their temperature taken, no earlier than 7:30 am. Any child dropped off between 7:30 and 7:50 will go into before-care. There will be a $2 charge each day for any child entering before-care. Any student arriving at school at or after 7:50 am, will be allowed to enter the School and go to their classroom, (before-care children will remain in before-care until 8 am), thus spreading out the number of children in a room close together.


We understand that the brochure that was printed this summer, had 7:45 am written as the cut off time for families not to be charged. That time was changed to 7:50 at the beginning of the school year and we apologize for any negligence in getting that communicated to everyone! Please give us a call if you have any questions about our before and after-care program.
