Thoughts From The Pastor Minimize

October 22nd - Feast of St. John Paul II, Pope
"Hats Off!" to our SMMA upper grade students who took first place honors at the Academic Decathlon held at Vianney High School.  28 elementary schools, 280 middle grade students, competed in the areas of Math, English, Technology, History and Science.  Whiel religion and discipleship are, of course, our priorities here at SMMA, it is good for you to know our students excel in other subjects as well.

Last week we celebrate the life of our parish patron who was a Visitation Nun in the late 1600's.  St. Margaret Mary Alacoque fostered devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. My prayer for each of you is that, through her intercession, you will always stay close to the heart of Jesus.


As this is the 50th anniversary of our parish grade school, we celebrated a beautiful Mass with our school children this morning.  Our special guest was Bishop Rice, who has relatives in our school.  Also present were officials of the Catholic Education Office of the Archdiocese.  


During his homily Bishop Rice asked the children if they knew what 2 + 2 equals - if they knew why the year 1776 is special - if they knew what H20 symbolized.  Of course they did!  He then mentioned that the public schools also teach children these things.  He went on to highlight the uniqueness of a Catholic School, that we teach the message and the life of Jesus Christ, that we pray together, which helps our students be Alive in Christ (the mission of all Catholic schools) and live as His disciples. After Mass the Bishop blessed a new statue in front of our school, an image of Jesus holding children with a circle inscription Jesus meets Children meet Jesus.  


So... I invite all parishioners to join me in asking God's blessings on our parish school and dedicating our energy to keeping our school Alive in Christ for the next 50 years.


God bless you!
