Principal's Message

Happy New Year! Happy Epiphany!

On behalf of faculty and staff we want to thank you for all your gifts and cards at Christmas. We all are blessed to be part of the IC community.

We all look forward to a healthier and happier new year. We keep our families in prayer that are going through financial and health challenges. Hopefully the tide will turn soon and we can move forward.

If anyone in Monrovia is struggling with their rent, mortgage or utilities because of COVID-19, or has children that attend school in Monrovia, there is funding available to help with your housing or utilities. That is due to the City of Monrovia and the Council of Governments (COG) giving our city money for this use, to keep people falling into homelessness. It is limited to up to $2000 one-time assistance. Contact Carol 626 506-5252.

Traditions are treasures passed on from one generation to the next. This is a worldwide tradition to share as the new year begins.

Epiphany Blessing of the Door

Using chalk, mark the top of the frame of your front door as follows:

20 + C + M + B + 21

The three Wise Men, Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar followed the star of God’s Son.

May Christ bless our home and remain with us throughout the new year. Amen.

Visit, O blessed Lord, this home.

Bless all who live or visit here with the gift of your love;

and grant that we may manifest your love to each other

and to all whose lives we touch.

May we grow in grace and in the knowledge and love of you;

guide, comfort, and strengthen us in peace,

O Jesus Christ, now and forever.
