Blessing of the Animals Mass:
Mass is on Friday 10/6 at 11:00 am. My apologies, in the last newsletter I gave the wrong date. All are welcome to attend. Children will sit with their class for the Mass. Parents and animals will sit in a designated area. At the end of the Mass the children may go to their parent to walk their pets up for a blessing. After the blessing of the animals, the children need to return to their class for dismissal. Because Mass is held outside, students may also wear the uniform shorts for the Mass.
Month of the Rosary:
Every Thursday the students will meet and recite the rosary as a school family. If your child has a rosary, they are welcome to bring their own. Please review how to hold a rosary and practice the prayers. We will also practice in class to help the students become more familiar with praying the rosary.
Adoration in the Chapel:
Adoration and rosary is held every Friday morning at 7:15. Parents and children are welcome to attend.
Sweatshirts and Sweaters:
Please label all sweatshirts and sweaters. Clothing labels are a great way to do this. You can write your child's name on them, they stick on (no ironing), and stay on in the washer and dryer. They last a very long time too.
Please turn in the permission slips and money by October 19th. Chaperones must have completed the required safe environment training, cleared fingerprints, and turned in the forms for driving (see office for these).
