How are you loving God with all your heart, mind, and strength, and your neighbor as yourself?
Helping those in need:
We are now collecting gently used clothing and blankets for the victims in the Philippines until Nov 22. This is an excellent opportunity to put the virtue of Charity into practice. Please see what you can spare. Items can be dropped off in the office or in the bin on the first floor hallway. Thank you for your generosity.
Showing our gratitude for each other:
On Veteran’s day we walked down to the Barton Village Common to support our fallen, retired, and current service men and woman by singing God Bless the USA to express a heartfelt thank you.
Miss Wilson and the Fourth Grade spent the past few weeks learning about our Veterans and the great sacrifices they make for our freedom and wrote personal thank you notes to our local heroes.
Desire for holiness:
On November 1st, we all gathered dressed as our favorite Saints as we looked forward to our eternal calling, life in Heaven with God. Students put a lot of time and effort into researching those who went before us and were more than excited to share what they had learned with their peers.
Time in Prayer
First Friday Devotions continue as we spend time at the feet of Our Lord. As St. Padre Pio once said “A thousand years of enjoying human glory is not worth even an hour spent sweetly communing with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.”
