Principal's Message 03/22/2019
Please join me in praying for our second grade students who will be receiving the sacrament of reconciliation for the first time this Sunday at 12:00. Sometimes this sacrament can be considered somewhat bittersweet. It is hard to recognize our offenses yet alone admit them out loud to a Priest. However, how wonderful it feels when we hear those words out loud, “I absolve you from your sins,”. If you have not taken advantage of this beautiful opportunity for a while, I encourage you to once again experience the joy and grace that is felt after going to confession.
State Assessments have begun!! Please be mindful of scheduling appointments over the next several weeks so we can get them completed in a timely fashion. A good breakfast, nights rest, and effort are encouraged.
I would like to thank all of you who helped sell the raffle tickets and work at the dinner. We served over 1000 people and the raffle brought in roughly $20,000.00. As you may not know, it cost St. Patrick Catholic Church between $5000.00 and $6000.00 per student to provide a Catholic education. Attending a Catholic school without having to pay the thousands of dollars in tuition like other dioceses is a true gift and it takes all of us working together to make it possible!!! So again, thank you!!!
