Thank you to the Home and School Association for sponsoring this event!
On the Solemnity of the Assumption, teachers and students gathered for a prayer service led by the school staff to honor our Blessed Mother. The Gospel passage of the Annunciation and Mary’s visit to Elizabeth was read. Petitions were prayed asking for the intercession of Mary of Lourdes, Our Lady of Czestochowa (people of Poland), Lady of La Vang (people of Vietnam), Lady of Africa, Lady of Guadalupe, Lady of Perpetual Help, and Our Lady ofSorrows. Behold by David Kaufman was heard. It is a song based on the Magnificat. Hail Mary, Gentle Woman was sung by everyone. A few minutes of silent reflection were used to listen toThere is a Presence by John Angotti. Our prayer service ended with a unanimous, YES!!!, which was Mary’s answer to God’s call.
We are looking forward to seeing ALL our families on Monday, August 8th from 3:00-6:00 pm for our All-In Registration Day! You will be able to turn in the necessary registration forms for your students, bring their school supplies, and visit several stations to take care of other items needed to begin the school year smoothly. Just as we ended last school year with some fun (see pictures from Field Day below), we hope to begin this 2016-2017 school year by seeing all our families at the All-In Registration Day!
