From the Principal's Office...
As we were reminded in Mass today, we don't celebrate Christmas on just one day of the year. Christmas is a whole season starting with the 12 Days of Christmas between Christmas and Epiphany and lasting until Candlemas on February 2. It is a wonderful time to celebrate the love that brought God from heaven when Jesus came to be born to Mary here with us. That love isn't some distant far-off thing, it is right here and now and we can make it even more present in the love we show to one another each and every day of this wonderful season.
We are grateful to be starting 2023 with each and every one of you. We are blessed by your children and take seriously our partnership in helping your child become who God created them to be. Thank you!
Don't forget tomorrow is a Spirit Day. Your child may wear their yellow Spirit Shirt with uniform bottoms tomorrow, Friday, January 7. Our Vocation really is Mercy!
St. Therese, Sts. Cyril and Methodius, pray for us!
