Teaching the Way of Jesus Christ
October 22, 2018
First Quarter Christ Bearer Award Recipient
A Message from Our Principal
In prayers this morning, we talked about Mark’s Gospel where he said, “For the Son of Man came not be served but to serve, and to give His life as ransom for many.”
The key is serving others. Encourage your children to serve others. Engage them in activities that allow them to help others.
We recognized academic achievement this morning at Prayer Service. See list of Honor Roll, Accelerated Reader recognition, and Christ Bearer Recipient.

World Mission Rosary
World Mission Rosary will be this Friday, October 26 at 11am in the Church. Please join us as we pray for all the people in the world. In February of 1951, Archbishop Fulton Sheen saw the need for us to pray not just for ourselves, but for the whole world, and especially for those who are poor and vulnerable in our own country and around the world. “When the Rosary is completed, one has…embraced all continents, all people in prayer.” Join us in taking a tour of the world with the World Mission Rosary.
