A Message from our Principal

Our 8th graders led the school in praying the Holy Rosary. After the Rosary, we talked about the coming of the Season of Lent. Lent is a time of reflection and of turning our hearts to God. Jesus spent forty days in the desert after He was baptized by John the Baptist. Jesus fasted for these forty days and was tempted by the devil many times.

Like Jesus, we have forty days of Lent. During these forty days, we must intentionally concentrate on converting our hearts and move closer to our Creator God.

Peace in Christ,

Dr. John Shreve
