A MESSAGE FROM YOUR PRINCIPAL
Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I was blessed with times to experience the love and closeness with family and friends. In this special holiday time I always feel uplifted again in seeing, really seeing, my loved ones. I am so aware of the priceless treasure, the gifts that they are to me, and a renewed alertness to ensure my priorities are in place. In reflection, what a perfect setting this creates for me, in moving now into the joy and excitement of the anticipation and waiting of the Advent Season.
I start thinking of the coming of Christmas, and preparations, and what presents I can get for everyone, and how happy they will be receiving them, and how happy we all we be together again over the holidays! And I think of the greatest present of all that our Father gives me, Jesus, bringing hope and promise to our lives! I try not to let the secular message influence me, realizing the best present I can give them is really my “presence”. And their presence is really the best present they could give me. Maybe instead of planning and searching for the best presents to give, I should search on the best “presence” to give. And in remembering the beautiful message to us from Fr. Ed before Thanksgiving about gifts, maybe our “presence unwrapped” for each other will make the perfect presents!
Thank you for the awesome efforts and generosity of all who donated to our annual Student Council Thanksgiving Food Drive. As a school we surpassed our goal of 1500 cans, as well as $1645.45 in donations. Many needy families will be helped this holiday season! Thank you to all!
In the peace of Christ,
