Ms. Kassab's Newsletter for April!

Glory to God in the Highest!

Dear Parents,

Happy Spring, HT families!


Can you believe it is already April?! I pray you are having a fruitful lent, and keeping strong with your Lenten promises! As we journey on to the death and resurrection of our Lord, let us remember to always follow in his teachings and love one another as He loved us! I pray you have a most blessed and beautiful Easter season with your families! May God bless you always!

"The great gift of Easter is hope - Christian hope which makes us have that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake."

Religion

7th:

In religion classes, our 7th graders will be completing our study of the four writers of the Gospel, in which we will be focusing on Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, individually. Through their writings, we will be discovering their relation to Jesus, their audience, and the story of our Lord as told by each writer. Following this, students will be taking a test on the Gospel writers.


In addition, we will dive into our focus on the seven Sacraments, Holy week, the death and resurrection of our Lord.


Every Friday, we will be praying a rosary and doing meditation by the Statue of Guadalupe.
