A Message from our Principal

At our Monday morning prayer service, we talked about Palm Sunday and how we celebrated Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem. Today, as we begin Holy Week, we began to hear the trials of Jesus. The religious leaders felt threatened because of the attention Jesus was getting. They take Jesus to the Roman Governor, Pilate, and accuse him of religious crimes.

We invite you to our Passion Play and Veneration of the Cross ceremony this Thursday, at 11am in Scantlin Hall. Our 4th graders will narrate the Stations of the Cross while our 8th graders will act it out. We encourage you to come and participate with the children.

The True Worth Place, part of Presbyterian Night Shelter, is in great need of towels. We ask that every student, teacher, and staff member donate 1 new towel for this worthy cause. This is another great example of taking care of those who are in need. Thanks in advance for your generosity. Last day to turn in is Holy Thursday, April 18.

Early dismissal this Thursday, April 18. There will be NO after school care. Please make the necessary arrangements to pick up your children at noon Thursday.


Peace in Christ,

Dr. John Shreve

In order to do so, we will need some BBQ competitors!
We are looking for 12-15 teams, hoping for one representative per school. The teams will be judge on their Brisket, Pork Ribs, and/or Chicken (labeled and/or because each team only needs to submit one of the meats, but can, and is recommended to, submit all three)!
Competitors will be able to arrive by 10 AM on Saturday, April 27 and stay the night at Nolan in order to ensure they are able to get their best results! On April 28, the competition will begin with Mass at 11 AM in the Nolan Catholic Auditorium. Then at Noon, the gates open to the public to come around and try the best BBQ the Diocese has to offer! Judging will begin at 1 PM.
There is no entry fee to compete, but each team will be providing food for all attendees at the event!
It will be $10 a ticket with a $50 max for families when preregistered at www.stephenbreenmemorialfoundation.org.
