We returned to church this week for our first school Mass since September led by our fifth grade students. The fifth graders did a wonderful job with their Mass parts and created a beautiful banner for the theme of patience. The students not attending this Mass in person were able to watch the Mass live through Zoom. Each week throughout Lent, different grade levels will lead and attend Mass in person. May we take time during this Lenten season to grow in faith and trust in the slow work of God.
Congratulations to all of our CYO Basketball teams! They have all grown in skill and sportsmanship all season long. Way to go, Gators!

Our hearts are with the people of Ukraine during this challenging time. As a school, we have added an intention for peace in the Ukraine to our morning announcements. We are discussing how we may support the children suffering in Ukraine and will have more information to share soon. Classroom teachers discuss world events, such as this conflict, as they come up in classroom discussions at age appropriate levels. The Archdiocese has many ways your family can support the people of Ukraine immediately.
May we take time this Lenten season to trust in the slow work of God. “So humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.Cast all your worries upon him be- cause he cares for you.”
1 Peter 5:6-7.
