Second Week of Advent

posted by Michael Schreider

“As the journey of Advent continues, as we prepare to celebrate the nativity of Christ, John the Baptist's call to conversion sounds out in our communities. It is a pressing invitation to open our hearts and to welcome the Son of God Who comes among us to make divine judgement manifest. The Father, writes St. John the Evangelist, does not judge anyone, but has entrusted the power of judgement to the Son, because He is the Son of man
.”  (Catholic Culture)

Let us pray.
O Lord, stir up our hearts
that we may prepare for Thy only begotten Son,
that through His coming
we may be made worthy to serve Thee with pure souls.
Through the same Christ our Lord.

First Sunday of Advent

posted Nov 25, 2016, 8:43 AM by Michael Schreider

For us Catholics, the new Liturgical Year commences with the first Sunday of Advent. In this new liturgical year, the Church not only wishes to indicate the beginning of a period, but the beginning of a renewed commitment to the faith by all those who follow Christ, the Lord. 

The Season of Advent is therefore a season of vigilant waiting, that prepares us to welcome the mystery of the Word Incarnate, who will give the ‘Light’ to the womb of the Virgin Mary, but essentially this time prepares us not only to welcome this great event but to incarnate it in our lives.  For this reason, let us live this time of waiting not only to celebrate a historical memory but to repeat this memory in our lives and in the service of others. To wait for the Lord who comes, means to wait and to watch so that the Word of Love enters inside us and focuses us every day of our lives. (

International Walk Day / Oct 26 2016

posted Oct 24, 2016, 11:29 AM by Julianne Shelton

Wednesday is international I walk day, which is when students around the world walk instead of driving to school. Make sure to dress your child appropriately for the weather. We want to see as many children as possible walking or wheeling to school. Remember to meet at the basketball nets by the city parking lot at 9:00am. Maybe you parents can try it too, get some exercise and fresh air. Can't wait to see everyone walking on a beautiful fall day! Get outside and enjoy the weather before the snow comes.
