"But of that day or hour, no one knows, neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."
If the Lord came tomorrow, what would I have to say for myself?
Heavenly Father, I embrace Your will for me at this moment and in every moment of my life.
Diligence is the Virtue of Month
Student Council Thanksgiving Food Drive
Always, you are invited to come and celebrate mass with us.
Second Grade Thanksgiving Presentation and Feast
Congratulations to our second graders for the successful and well-attended staging of the Thanksgiving play yesterday. Each second grader confidently stood in front of a crowd of parents to deliver a line or two as part of the Readers' Theater prepared by our second grade teachers, Mrs. Collins and Mrs. Gotuaco. Our hats off to our student performers and their teachers. Thank you very much to all the parents, grandparents, family members, and friends who came and supported our second graders!
Kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast
Our Kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast took place yesterday morning. Students came with their aptly-themed headdresses. Thank you to our kindergarten team for all the preparations for the feast and to our parents who came and took time out of their busy schedules to prepare and serve the food to our little ones and other guests.
