Preparing for Week 5 of Lent

“How can I show my love to God?”


Christ reminds us that we show our love for God by loving others. We do not do good acts or works in order to receive God’s grace, favor, and/or love. But instead, out of gratitude for God’s gift, our hearts yearn to give to others. When we experience this gift completely, God’s grace and love pours out of our hearts and leads us to share Christ’s light with others.


Begin each day this week (either at breakfast or on the morning ride to work/school), inviting your family to participate in the discipline of service:


Say: “Today, I invite you to...

  • find a way to show Christ’s light to others through your actions.” (Encourage your family to think of creative ways to show Christ’s love to others through acts of service.)
  • pay attention to how you experience Christ’s love through the actions of others.”


Close each day (either on the way home from school/work, at dinner, or bedtime) reflecting on and sharing your experiences from the day:

  • I wonder how you shared Christ’s light with others?
  • I wonder how this made you feel?
  • I wonder how it made the other person/people feel?
  • I wonder how someone showed Christ’s love to you?
  • I wonder how this made you feel?
  • I wonder how it made the other person/people feel?


Through service, we remember that we love because God first loved us. These practices can strengthen your faith foundation, so that when the ground begins to shake, you can return to these disciplines as ways to ground yourself in your faith and what you KNOW deep down inside to be true. This is an important gift that you and your family can give to one another during this Lenten season.

2021-2022 SCHOOL CALENDAR

The 2021-2022 school calendar is ready. The Events Calendar will be completed in the coming months.

Student absence reminder

Please make sure you are calling the office or emailing Mrs. Rychtik if your child will be absent/tardy. School policy asks this to be done by 8:30am on the day of the absence. If you child needs to leave early for an appointment or other circumstance, continue sending in a note to the classroom/homeroom teacher.


Teachers have been hearing from students that he/she will be out on a certain day or for a number of days and then inquire about this with Mrs. Rychtik. Mrs. Rychtik cannot verify this information because she has not been told and it causes confusion for the teachers.

stations of the Cross

Students in Grades 1-8 will attend Stations of the Cross on Friday, March 26th. Deacon Mark will join the students. There will be two groups.


  • Grades 1-5 at 12:45

Catholic School Success During COVID

Fox News did a great story about the Catholic Schools in New York. Cardinal Dolan visited one of the parochial schools that has successfully opened for in-person learning this year to explore how they are doing it safely. The students, teachers, and parents say that this is the best option to keep their children focused and motivated.


Use the link below to watch the video. Thank you to the families, teachers, and staff of Holy Angels for proving in-person learning is successful when the proper precautions are taken.

School Committee Nominations

Date Extended to March 29th

Each year during the month of March, nominations are sought for the Holy Angels School Committee.
